Q: The door striker plate fell inside the car, how do I get it out?

asked by on

Good Evening,

My striker plate was loose and fell off the door, I heard something fall into the car where the striker plate was, and now I can't put the striker plate back in.

Is the striker plate mounted on some type of bracket? If so, how can I get the bracket back from inside the car. If I can send an image things could be clearer with what I'm referring to.

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
