Question Another brittle plastic thread

Does anybody have in ingenious method of retrieving the lower half of a broken PCV grommet, this thing was so shot it broke, and the lower half of the grommet dropped into the intake. I got out about 1/3 of the ring, it was so brittle it wouldn't come out without breaking. Now I'm left with 2/3 of the ring now out of sight, somewhere in there. Thanks for any help.

I'd take the intake off and find the rest of the ring. Dont need random piece wondering around the inners of your engine
