Hello

first time posting, so be gentle!

I was attempting to install a dashcam mount, and a screw about 1.5-2cm long fell from the mount and landed in the aircon vent. It managed to get through the honeycomb bit behind the slats, and since that happened I've heard it make its way slowly down. Now I can hear it sliding about wherever its ended up.

I assume it won't cause any damage to any fans, but don't know for sure- I've been driving with the fans at different settings and not noticed anything worrying, however the rattling is a little annoying and I would like to get the screw out for some peace of mind. Is there a way I can access these vents- ideally without taking the whole dashboard off?! Or is it better to leave it?

Thanks in advance!

I've only taken the CJ dash apart, and with that, the only way to get to the vent tubing is to take out the dash.. it won't harm the fan itself btw, it's something like this:

And to be fair if it go to the fan, you'd be able to access it from where the pollen filter is.
