Default Dropped a washer under shift assembly

Hi guys,

So today I installed the Perrin shift stop on my 2016 WRX. I dropped one of the washers and it fell under the shift assembly (Directly below the shifter).

There is no way for me to get it and I am unsure of what is down there. I don't want it to get caught up in anything mechanical and cause problems.

it is a pretty small washer. Should I be concerned? What is down there?

Buy a magnet pickup tool and see if you can fish it out

Don't be concerned. Mechanics drop nuts, bolts, washer, sockets, etc all the time. Many times they can't be retrieved and are just left with no issues.

A black hole.
I did that when I was installing the Perrin stop. I just found another identical washer in my hardware collection and finished the installation, then totally forgot about it.
