I tried using vacuum, needle nose pliers and even chopsticks but no luck, the space is too small. Is it ok to have all that crap in there? AC still works fine and stuff.
I used a section of plastic coated wire I had in my garage to shift the bulk, then dropped my high pressure airline in there for the rest...think it's more of a drain hole than an inlet, and all clear now. Wasn't causing me any issues either, it just needed doing!
