How to remove this? (internal spec)

To my shock there's a thread stuck in my lens. Looks like either fine cooper wiring or the orange lining found in my crumpler bag. I've tried tapping it, but it wont budge; probably as its statically stuck.

Any thoughts on how to move it to the edges at least? Would my sigma warranty cover cleaning to remove that?

It doesn't affect IQ or anything, it just drives me insane looking at it. T_T

The lens would have to be disassembled, a process which could be risky in itself. You could try to push the warranty at best, but the best course of action would probably be to ignore it. Definitely won't affect your IQ.

Clearly not a warranty issue (material and workmanship).
