It might have dropped into the plastic pan underneath the front part of the engine bay - it may be necessary to unscrew and detach that in order to locate the item.

Start taking your car apart. Meantime order a new LED, maybe two. See which takes less time. :wink

Maybe you're right,nothing bad can happen if it stays there?

Too simple a job for a detailed tutorial. Just crawl under the middle of the engine bay of the RAV (much easier if the front is on jack stands) and the screws which secure the plastic pan are obvious. Usually can get by with just undoing the rear screws and use a wire coat hanger, untwisted and with one end bent into a hook, and use that as a retrieval tool.

Or, just leave the bulb there - probably won't hurt anything.
