Get a hanger, put some gum, or if you can get culk and fish it out. Magnet will work too.

Best to get a telescopic magnet from your local Home Depot or Sears:



Do not use gum on a coat hanger, this can ruin a headlight if that is dropped in there also.

Looks like they addressed the fitment issues with a much larger rubber washer. Wish that was addressed in the previous version. They do not fit tightly at all. One is so very loose it backs out on its own...

What are you, an aftermarket parts distributor or a butcher? This has to be the most hack advise I've ever heard.

How does that make me a butcher? The housing is very open inside, and to small to fit your hand into it, you can look inside located the screw, put the stick or magnet in their and pull the piece out without touching anything in the housing, so once again, how does a tip make me into a butcher?

Agreed, that is what I would do as well to remove the screw
