Lost the charge air cooler hose metal retaining clip

What's up fellas!

While doing work on the car, the metal retaining clip of the charge air cooler hose popped out. Cannot find it anywhere, even when going under the car, removing the underbelly plates etc..



Anyone know if there's a replacement for this clip? I've seen entire hose assembly part numbers but not sure if I want to spend close to $50 for a hose when all I need is a clip.

Any tips or advise?

Thanks!

Maybe try ebay for a used unit and only use the clip?

That actually hasn't crossed my mind. Not concerned about the condition of the hose just the clip. Thanks.

I also just lost mine. Looked everywhere. I'm scared it might be caught up in a pulley but hoping it's not. Did you drive around without the clip? I'm thinking I can retro fit a tension clip but I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying a new one once I figure out the PN.
