Is it something you can be easily done DIY or do I have to take the car to the dealership. BTW: it's still under the 4 yr factory warranty
Interesting problem haha, not just because of the brush getting stuck, but it was your son who did it haha, hope you get it out safely!

Guys....really? guys?
31 e90posters to take care of a stuck toothbrush?
Easiest solution
You will need: metal hanger and finishing line
1- Get a one of those wire/metal hangers, open it up.

2-Tie a string/fishing line to the end of it, make a loop that can open and close. Leave slack on fishing line that will allow you to close loop.

3- Insert hanger with string thru mesh, get toothbrush to go in the loop, pull string to close loops with toothbrush in.

4- Pull hanger out. Work with finger to get toothbrush to go through.
You're done.

actually you are not done, now you have to buy new mesh because you just ripped a hairbrush sized hole in it.

yes, it was a hairbrush.

it will not pull through the mesh unless you have magic powers or feel like buying new mesh afterwards.

it never went thru the mesh when it went in, it was dropped down there from behind.

As I threaded down, I saw it land right on top of the brush, but I couldn't find a tweezer or anything that was thin enough, so after a lot of experimentation, I found a thin pair of bamboo skewer sticks

Gingerly, I looped it around the brush handle and holding it down with one sticks, I yanked the knot hard. Then slowly I pulled the shoelace and it started coming up... at one point it got stuck and I had to lower it back down, but the next time it came back up the right way. I reached into the grille the moment I could fit my fingers through and wham out it came

The things 3 years olds do... hope these scientist years pay off later!

and thanks for all the suggestions, folks!


Nope, it went through the kidney grille. There seems to be space on the sides it feel through. And that's the same way I pulled it out, no mesh was damaged when I removed the brush cause I used bamboo sticks that fit through the holes in the mesh to hook on the lasso loop.


I was probably driving with the brush for a few days.. Noticed it as I was approaching the car as it was parked in a parking lot. The sun was up high and shone straight into the grille. Good thing it was red and white and out there, being cooled cause probably any other place would have caused it to melt!
