I changed the air filter on my 2003 4wd Honda Element and I dropped one of the 4 screws for the airbox. So now I only have 3 screws holding it together.
I dropped the screw and washer on the engine and now I cannot find it. It is somewhere in or on the engine (it didn't get inside the airbox).

Is this going to be a problem? :sad: I already drove around the block a bit and I don't hear anything rattling or clanging in the engine. I hope the screw and washer just fell to the ground somehwere.

Will Home Depot have replacement screws of the same size or do I need to call my local Honda dealer?

I recommend going to a hardware store, take one of the screws out there, match it up. I believe they are 6mmX1.0 pitch. Just do it as a saftey precaution. Also, buy a collapse magnet, just to fish out that screw if its still there and for future fishing. Good luck.
