Dropped an 8mm bit under the ECU box

So I dropped an 8mm bit and it went all the way down under the ECU box where it's not visible anymore. I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same or know a quick way to access it from the bottom.

Take the car to a steep incline and hope it rolls to the front so you can get it.
