I have minimal space to work with on a BMW X3.
I am changing the coolant.
I am following these instructions: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e83-x3-2.0d-sav/repair-manuals/17-cooling/17-00-cooling-check/HPNNTeW
I am dealing with the drain plug on the side of the engine block, which is removed.
I am now trying to put it back on.
From beneath the vehicle I need to use a long 22mm ring ratchet wrench (no room for other types of socket) and somehow use it to pass the M14x1.5 drain plug back up to the site (approx 30cm away), line it up and thread it on.
There is no room for larger tools, such as a ratchet wrench, and certainly no room for arms and hands.
The only tool that I can get through the gap with suitable clearance is a ring wrench.
Any tips on how to get the nut to stay on the wrench on the way up and not fall off or misallign as I try to thread it into place?
