I managed to grop the darn bowden retainer clip into the side of the print head on my UM2 upgraded to 2+, could this melt and cause problems?>Taking the assembly apart is not desirable as I only have use of one hand due to a disability. Thanks

When this happens to me I usually use some tweezers and/or turn the printer around and shake it a bit.

I would not worry too much if you can't get it out, I lost one for a long time and replaced it only to rediscover it (inside the print head assembly) months later when I had to disassemble the print head.

 

I do not think there is any risk of it melting

I also had this once too. Got it out with fine tweezers. Otherwise, use a stick with chewing gum or sticky wax attached to it. Maybe it doesn't hurt the machine to leave it in there, but it does hurt your peace of mind.

 

And then print a couple of these. See here, and scroll down a bit:
