Exclamation Lost clip, where can i find another?

Like a dummy, i lost that tiny clip that holds the wastegate arm on

Dont have a clue what it is called
Went to Ford, that guy was NO HELP at all!
Napa gave me 2 similar clips but they dont work.

Can anyone find the part, have a spare, or tell me a way around it?


HELP!

You can still drive without the arm attached, but best bet, head to a scrap yard and fine a NBS 7.3 to pull one from.

Napa or Carquest should have an assortment of C-clips..see if you can find one for 1/8" or 3/16".I would check the diameter of mine,but I just drove 50 miles and she is kinda warm.
