Dropped a 5mm allen wrench in the same spot when replacing the windshield trim.

I removed the shielding and also the xdrive subframe reinforcement plate and found my Allen wrench.

I was reluctant to start the engine until I had found the wrench.

That specific F30 hole should lead straight to the front plastic cover, so u can jack up the car and remove the cover to retrieve the dropped piece.
