    yeah the m6 doesnt have a pan. im not sure where the magnet was originally located but ya it got all chewed up but all the gears and bearings look really good actually. im just afraid that the tiny pieces that are still probably in there are going to find their way into the bearings and toast my transmission. i have no idea what would cause the magnet to come out of its place tho.

    Magnets are usually on the drain plug. Someone else will have to say for sure though.

    If the M6 does not have a magnet on the drain plug, then maybe it was something else that was chewed up in the OP's transmission.
