you could try a small magnet taped to a coat hanger, that will do it if its still in the ductwork otherwise your going to have to dissassemble

Thanks good idea. Any tips or links to diagrams of the disassemble process?

you can go to any car shop and they sell for probably change a tube magnet that is real flexible and a strong magnet thats probably your best bet. probably long enough u wont have to disassemble anything

What if the item isn't magnetic? ????
