hah happened to me as well while installing my JDM emblems. If it fell right infront of the fans try picking it up with ur hands, well thats what I did :)

Its a ***** to retrieve parts dropped in the civic.I use a magnetic retrieval tool if I can see the buggers. Otherwise, try banging on panels or wash out with a bucket of water but its a potential black hole. GL

dentrecords' accidentally dropped a throttle bottle bolt into the engine bay. We couldn't find it whatsoever. He revved his car and it came tumbling down. :p
