Blower resistor lost in heater core housing

So was changing out blower resistor and the old one fell out of its rigid bolt on part and the metal coil and plug tab part fell into the heater core housing. Tried blindly fishing it out with flexible magnet pick up tool but no dice. Installed the new one and all is working fine. Don't want to pull the housing just to fish it out but don't want to set myself up for any issues in the future. Any problems just leaving it in there?

Probably no problem since it just collects dirt over the years anyway. It can wait until your ready to remove it to clean it out or need to replace the core itself.

Nope. Leave it. When I opened my heater box up, there was a mouse house in there that was muy old. Caused no known problems other than the gross out part.

The resistor allows for fan speed control (Hi, med, lo, ect). Mine has two, one for the AC blower and another for the heater blower.
