Default Air Cleaner Housing "Clip" Needed

Can anyone advise where I can get one these "Metal Clips" that hold down the Right Side of the Air Cleaner Housing? One of the clips flew off while changing the Battery. Model: 2002 PT Cruiser Touring

First, try probing around with an extending "pencil" magnet. The clip went somewhere.
Second, try a wrecking yard. I bet a Neon would use the same clip.
Third. the dealer.
Fourth, use a heavy duty binder clip, from a stationery store, or a small C clamp, in the interim.

The hose, along with the air box, is different on the '06 and up PT's, but the hoses function is the same. It's the "make-up air hose", comes off the crank case and is a federal regulation to prevent emission of oil fumes into the atmosphere. The hose takes crank case over-pressure and runs it to your air box into a sponge filter. If you don't have one, you must be putting oil on your engine somewhere. If you look at mine, it's got that hose connection sealed off at the air box, because I run the crank case to an external breather.

Somewhere here on the forums I posted a how-to on this, might want to search it out. Pic below shows the breather I use, clean it just like a K&N filter, using the same cleaner and oil for it.

my 07 was badly abused when i bought it. when i did the once over i opened up the air filter case
first it was glued shut, even worse with wood glue. Second, they took a fram filter that was much too big and cut it then shoved it in to fit. the little clips were broken so i just took it to the local chrysler dealership, i was ssoooo angry i couldnt even deal with it myself.
