Oops I typed on from the app an it deleted most of my original text. Anyway, I dropped the little rubber piece that attaches to the bracket that holds the airbox in place (the part where the 10mm bolts screw into) into the engine compartment. I tried to find the part number using tischer and realoem but I didn't know what it would be under. Does anyone happen to know what that thing is called? Also, should I try to get it out, or will it be ok?

Got it! Thanks so much! Also, should I try to retrieve that part from the engine bay, or will it fall out on its own?

the best thing to do is try to get it out, the aero undercarrage will catch it and it wont just randomly fall out

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

How would I go about getting it out? The piece isn't magnetic, so using a magnetic-grabber-thingy wouldn't really work.

Does it pose any risk of damaging something? Its just a small piece of rubber/plastic

not really but then again i'm one of those anal drivers that can't stand when a noise isn't suppose to be there happens so i try to fix it. and personally, you can take the under carriage off if you have time, tools, and patience. if you aren't tht anal about stuff then it should just be find being down there. and the only risk i can think of is it catching on to something spinning or burn/melt from the heat
