Need Help!! Broke lower/return coolant hose clip

Hey guys, my lower/return radiator hose busted and while removing the hose I had to break a clip which was holding the hose to the body. I haven't been able to find a part number or the clip anywhere online.

I'd appreciate if someone could help me out with either the part number or a link to where I can find it.

The clip isn't an exact match of the photo but it's something similar, I'm sure the experienced folks know what I'm talking about.

Thanks

Go to www.realoem.com and enter the last 7 characters of the carís VIN. Hit enter and bookmark the page. Check both the engine and radiator sections for the hose. You canít replace just the clip.

I have tried realoem, but I don't see the part in Cooling, engine or body.

I was wondering if someone else had an experience with this [email protected]&@(* clip.
