SIM tool accidentally inserted into top microphone hole. Help!

Help, in my haste I accidentally tried to eject my SIM card using the top microphone hole. Yikes! I had used the normal amount of force required to eject the a SIM tray and felt a pop. Has anyone torn down a Pixel 3 and poked a SIM tool in the top microphone to see what would be damaged if anything? If so, I would love to know your findings. I have searched Google and found nothing so far for the Pixel 3. This seems to be a common occurrence if in a hurry and you assume the tray is on the top like a majority of phones. My mistake for sure. Thanks.

The pop i s most likely the filter for water resistance or dust resistance. Assume both of those are compromised due to the puncture in the filter.

Make sure to test the phone in speakerphone mode as the microphone as located at that hole to make sure it works.

any findings? I’ve just done the same. I must say this is not our fault, this is poor design.
