My LED parking light bulb in my 18 XT was acting up so I took it out to reseat it. I was having a bit of trouble getting the socket to lock back into place when I noticed the bulb appeared to have fallen out of the socket and into the headlight housing. I tried to look for it through the lens but couldn't see it behind the yellow reflector. I also tried fishing around inside the housing with a plastic zip tie but can't seem to find out where the bulb is.

Do you think it'd be an issue to just leave the dropped bulb in the housing if I can't see where it ended up? My only concern is if the dropped bulb finds a way to migrate and interferes withe steering responsive headlights. I'm not sure if the parking light section is connected to the rest of the headlight housing but I feel like it might be.

Not sure if the bumper cover has to be removed. If it does it isn't that bad to do. Just have to take care not to ruin the clips. I had mine off at my nextdoor neighbor's body shop to replace a cracked grill.
