    Probably sat on the undertray somewhere.

    Wouldn't fancy driving it with a screwdriver floating around, wouldn't want it end up caught in a belt somewhere!

    Jack car up and there are about 6 quick release screws that hold the tray on.

    Most likely sitting on there as thats where all my dropped stuff ends up
