Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I'd like to try and help. On your issue, I would check in the acc drive device, If you do not see any damage at that point, I would look at the air compressor. The only other spot that I can see a a piece like that is located in the gear train in the front from the thrust washers and gear stands. I hope this helps with your issue. Thank you.
