After I posted my comment, I noticed you had mentioned this in your post as well. Sorry for the duplication. But perhaps others will recognize this pitfall clearly.

You're right. HUGE PITA. I spent the first 10 minutes looking for the freakin' gear thinking it fell down the ventilation duct. My wife, who watched a bit of my installation, was kind of chuckling and telling me that I should leave this type of $hit to the pros. After using her tweasers, I sure showed her.
