I was replacing old mud flaps with new ones (Rally Armor), and one of the plastic screws holding them was pretty stuck, forcing me to break it. I grabbed the front part with pliers, but the rear part fell back through the hole, into what I assume is the undercarriage:

I'm now worried that it will rattle around while driving,wondering what's the best way to get it. Should I try to take the wheel well liner off, and if so - how? Or should I take off the plastic undercarriage?

It’s such a tiny plastic piece, you will probably not hear anything. I had the same situation 6 months ago and that plastic piece is still there somewhere. I never noticed any rattle.

Do they take the rear bottom plastic part off to install the trailer hitch? If so, then I guess it'll take care of itself :)

On the other hand, if they do need to take it off, then they'll also need to take off the mud flaps, which will ruin the mounting hardware :(
