While I was removing my Lenovo yoga 520 base cover a small piece of a clip broke off and went underneath the motherboard. I tried tilting the laptop but it’s not coming out. What can be done to remove the clip? Or should I just leave it there?

If it was plastic and not moving around you might cause as much harm getting it out as leaving it if you're not all that knowledgeable about disassembling laptops. But if it can move about freely and theres moving parts it could become lodged in and render them broke, such as optical drive or keyboard keys, it might should be gotten out. If it's metal you really need to get it out. If you don't think you can disassemble enough to remove it then it may be time for a pro.
