screw fell into heater vent

I was working on my Jeep the other day and the screw fell onto the dash on passenger side. i think it went into heater vent, but maybe between windshield and the dash pad.
Before I took everything apart, anyone knows where the stupid screw might have ended up, so I just remove whatever is neccessary.
It doesn't seem affect my heater (no A/C), but I want it out of there.

Re: screw fell into heater vent

1st off, I know nothing about YJ's....If it went down the defrost vent, I'd find a telescoping magnet. Try to shove it down there. If it's like a CJ, you may be able to open the heater flap and shove the magnet through there. I think the only thing to worry about is the fan motor. If it were me, I'd let it stay. If you hear the fan clanging, turn it off. You found the screw. Remove heater box. Kind of a lazy man's approach.
