The drivers side had a pool of oil inside the bolt. I fished around with my allen wrench - but also did not feel or find anything.
That is b/c the filters had dropped down inside...all you will see is a flat, round black top of the filter...this is where I used the 3 prong "Parts retrieval claw" from my egghead computer tool kit. I am sure your filters are still in there which is impeding the oil flow.
