Default Lost a bolt from the back of the intake manifold...Help?

2004 Pt Cruiser 2.4L Turbo GT.

So, I was changing out my sparkplugs and wires today, and putting eveyrthing back together, when I was screwing on (in the back) the bold and washer with the grounding wire(i think that's what it is?), and I dropped the bolt and it dropped behind the heat shield...
So what I'm asking is...either how can I get that bolt, or what size bolt that was, so I can go pick another up?

Here's a photo, if it makes it easier. (It wouldn't let me upload, so I had to link it to Imgur for the upload)

Knock or rattle the heat shield with a piece of wood.
Try not to ding up the heat shield too much.
Maybe the bolt will fall out.

Yes, worth a try. Or a piece of wire. Or a blast of air. A foolproof method is to invite some friends over, get them all cocked up, then turn the car upside down and shake it till the bolt falls out.
