You might want to try using a magnetic tool with a long arm. Often sold at auto parts stores. Some have extendable arms.

I have used a tool that is magnetic on one end and holds screws on the other. Looks like a pen that fits in your pocket. I have taped a string on it and "thrown" or dangled it into one of those areas that one can see into. It seems that after several tosses it almost always gets the nut, washer or bolt.

Keep us posted,
