You might be able to fetch them from underneath, in the diverter, if they went down far enough. For pictures see http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/forum/general-pt-cruiser-discussions/43327-ac-vent-door.html

Or get one of those wands with a magnet on the end, flexible shaft. Some part must be steel, magnetic, even if the keys are brass. If not a magnet, some have 'grabber' fingers that open when you push the button on handle

i appreciate your help. how silly I feel. if they went way down can I come up through the bottom some how?

Yes, possible but might take some dis-assembly of the HVAC system. I would try that tool from the top first, go fishing even if you can't see them. The tool is cheap, like under $5, at any auto-parts store. That's if you have a way to get there..call a friend or something if you don't have another car. It really is worth a shot before starting to take things apart
