Are these clips available?


Recommended Posts

I looked all over the National Parts Depot website trying to find this clip.  I have seen the same clip on several years of Mustangs I have owned in places like the trunk and under hood.  This pictured clip happens to be off the bottom of my hood at the back.  I think it was used to somehow attach the windshield washer hoses, but on my ‘69 it was used to retain a wire for the trunk lid light.  This clip pictured is broken—it is missing the V-shaped or arrow shaped clips that retain it when pressed into a hole.  Any idea what part number, what its technical name is, or a link to purchase?

The closest I've found is from AMK P.N. B-10976. The correct tape is AMK P.N. B-11666. Chuck

These don't have the arrow type retainer, but at least are black

Thanks Don, mine actually wasn’t originally black—it was white.  It was on the hood 10 years ago when I painted the hood black.  I couldn’t get the clip out then and didn’t want to break it, so I painted over it.  I knew someday it would be done properly, and so it goes, I had to break it to paint the hood the correct color.  The white one you posted is the exact clip.  

In the application of placing under hood—am I correct it is intended to hold the windshield washer hose?  

Thanks everyone!

Yes, the washer hose is held in place by them.  You can see where mine are located at.  I used electrical tape to secure the hose to them.
