Just wait. It will float by sooner or later

NASA Space Station On-Orbit Status 1 December 2004

"The crew has located the solid shim for the EMU (extravehicular mobility unit) 3005 water pump that went missing during the 11/10 attempt to replace the pump rotor. Planning is underway to resume the EMU cooling system s repair at the earliest opportunity, probably in two weeks. [Would you believe how it was found? Sharipov happened to see the tiny metal ring float by as he was in the DC1 to set up for a teleconference with TsUP. The shim was reported to be in good condition, and pictures were sent down to the ground for evaluation.]"
