While taking the throttle body off a 1998 dodge ram with the 5.9 engine. I broke the plastic clip off that attaches it to the throttle body. I know they probably don't sell a replacement clip and i will probbaly have to buy a whole new cable. I am having trouble finding one online does anyone know where to get one? Preferably cheap... I haven't tried the local junkyards yet i might end up having to go that rout but i want to see what the cost of a new cable is.

either your local junk yard or you might be able to find one at your local parts store. they have that section of parts called "HELP" or sumthin like that.

After some searching i found out that the Mopar part number for the cable is 52104030AB and that also matches up to Jeep Grand Cherokee 1997-1998. Crown Automotive sells a replacement cable with the same part number for $24. So this should work for MUCH cheaper than discount dealer price of $37-$54.

Replacement clip

Below is a link to a replacement clip that will fit the 2nd gen Dodge Ram 5.9 V8 and also fits the Jeep 4.0L

Don't replace the entire cable if you don't have to. Hope this helps some folks out.

Holy [email protected]! Am I the cheapest basterd here or what? Screw this, its just a clip! It's a $.50 part. Go on Craigslist and find a Ram of the right gen in "auto parts". Tell the guy what you need and give him $5 for his trouble. That part usually goes to the junk-yard with the rest of the truck. While you're there, you may find other stuff you need. The $5 for the clip will make him happier to give you a deal on the other small stuff you may want.

Pretty cool production process....to use on a ram 1500 to replace broken clip I just carefully remove rest of broken one and this will just slip on?! Sweet! Ordered one, will update after install.

Yea the square clip is attached to the end of the cable. So no way to replace just that. But a couple zip ties and your good.
