Go for the magnet or strip down, compressed air could just push it somewhere disastrous.
An old trick is to use a strong magnet on the outside of the housing were you think the piece or pieces are likely to be lying. Then slowly work the magnet to a convenient opening such as the strarter opening. Worth a try anyway.
Safe sailing
