    Default Anyone know where to find these fuel vent hose clips?

    I've searched online and at a few auto parts stores without luck trying to find these clips. I may just go with generic metal clips and sheet metal screws if I have to, but would like to find these or similar plastic clips if possible.Name:  FullSizeRender.jpg

    There are some similar shaped clips used to hold small corrugated plastic tubing, black. I donít recall where on a Foxbody.

    My concern with the junk yard is that pretty much all of mine were destroyed trying to carefully pull them out.

    I've had pretty good luck at NAPA for plastic clips and fasteners like that. Just go to the store and go through their rack. They should also have a catalog (like a real live catalog not on a computer) that has everything they can get too.

    I dont know where this clip goes, but if you can get to the back side of it with a pair of needle nose pliers you can squeeze the two tabs together and push the clip back out thru the hole without breaking off the tabs.

    Yeah, I would have done that if possible, but unfortunately, these stick into the frame.

    I don't think this is going to help much, but it looks like the part number for that clip is N801968-S.

    Here is a shot of the clip from the Ford Master Parts Catalog...

    I checked Rearcounter.com and Partsvoice and wasn't able to find anything available, which isn't unusual since the part number is probably over 30 years old. You could e-mail the picture of the clip to an online retailer like clipsandfasteners.com or auveco.com and see if they have the clip (I also checked their online catalogs and couldn't find that exact clip) or something similar that you might be able to use. You could also call Green Sales. I checked their inventory and they don't show as having any. They do have a national parts locator though and may be able to find some.
    If they take my stapler, then I'll set the building on fire...

    I think I need about 4-5.

    Did you take yours off and replace with something else?

    Yeah, that'd be great if you have 5 unbroken clips. Feel free to PM your Venmo or PayPal info.

    Thanks.
