hey everyone - I've got a random one that I'm not even quite sure how to search. Long story short - i bought new 'kernals' for the door latch to help with difficulties closing the door. I figured why not clean the entire door latch assembly after years of grease and grime. No problem removing the receiver and it's 4 screws (1 larger and 3 smaller). When I went to reinstall, I lined up the receiver with the holes upon placing a screw through, a plate on the reverse side of the body fell down to the bottom of inside the car and is seemingly unreachable. Crap. I'm already trying to use a magnet extension to try and grab it by stick it down inside the holes but not having any luck. Any other access points would be really helpful.

Have you taken the interior trim panel out of the rear? You can reach the back of the lock plate there (though perhaps not where it ended up).

Yes, with the trim panel removed you will find the fallen plate in a crevice just behind the door latch panel.
