Lost a paper stub between windshield and dashboard

When I opened the driver side door today the wind blew a pc of paper into the crack where windshield meets dashboard. I can't get it out and at this point I think it's fallen completely into the crack. It's driving me crazy anyone know where that paper is going to end up or how can I remove it?

It's going to end up behind the dashboard.

No point in removing it (unless it was something you needed).

In order to get it out you'd have to start stripping the dash down. By the time you get to it you'll probably have created more rattles and squeaks because of broken plastic clips. You can look underneath the foot well to see if it fell all the way through, otherwise just let it go.

Its funny but I can see the reflection of a stub of paper on my windshield. I believe it's from the factory and there is no way to get it out. I thought that I lost a parking slip or something but this piece of paper is from the factory.

LOL this happened to me as well!! A parking ticket got blown down there and it covers my VIN. I tried removing it but its impossible so I just forget about it, not worth stressing over.

Maybe you can try pushing air into the gap with a compressor and see if it makes it all the way to the bottom? That would drive me nuts. I will make it a habit of folding the corner of my parking tickets from now on...

I noticed there's a piece of paper covering all but the first 3 letters of the VIN. Does the factory do this now, or was it my dealer?

must have happened either when you just got the car or just b4.
