Dropped low beam cover in bumper

I was replacing my low beam on the left side and I dropped the cover that you take off last in the bumper and it fell all the way down to the bottom. How will I go about getting it out? 08 328xi

Thanks, I was hoping for a better way than to remove bumper, but it doesn't seem to hard. I was thinking I'd have to do this anyways.

Remove a few bolts holding the inner liner in place and fold back. you should be able to reach in and get it. Good Luck.

Try this first before you remove the bumper.
