While replacing the screws that hold the headlight bezel on, I dropped one and it fell into the bumper. It fell in the bumper, yea i know, It fell into the metal case that holds the yellow/orange marker light in the bumper. I can't get it out.... Help.
Couple things: stainless steel screws(sorry no magnets), hands are to big, can't use a screw driver/stick of some sort(lack of room), and the car is low and i can't get it to a car jack for that.
Any suggestions please tell...

If it's just the marker light you could just pull that assembly off. It shouldn't be too hard.

If you can see it and touch it, take a screwdriver and put a gob of hot melt glue on the tip and press it to the screw until it cools off a little and pull it out. After you get it out take your fingernail and scrap off the hot melt glue. JB
