Default vent under the seats (king ranch)

I have 2007 F150 King Ranch. I was taking some coworkers to lunch the other day and one of them dropped an after dinner mint under my seat. Apparently it rolled into the little vent beneath the passenger captains chair because we couldn't find it anywhere else. Now when I'm driving and make a turn I can hear it rolling back and forth down there. Anyone know a good way to get access to that area and how I can get the mint out? Its driving me crazy!

get a light and a vacuum cleaner, that may work. the mint can't go far, how you can hear it rattle, you must have exceptional hearing.

heres a pic of what the vent looks like under the carpet, if the mint went all the way down to the footwell area you may have a hard time getting to it with a vacuum. it wouldnt be too hard to get to that vent by pulling the carpet back if it got too annoying to deal with.
i circled the vent tube with orange

i dropped sometihng in the vents under my drivers seat a while back, used a "flex light and a mirror tool (pepboys little mirror on stick) and used a coat hanger or something to get out - had fallen down to drivers well seat. couldn't get out with vaccume.

Considering how hard it can be to get access to those vents, it may be worthwhile to put some type of screen (window screen would work) over the vent to prevent anything else from rolling into the vents.
