WTB Metal clip at hinge of sun visor vanity mirror

Mine just rocket-launched during repair and lost in outer space.... it's that little c cross-section springy metal clip, that fits over the mirror cover hinge. If you have broken mirrors/ covers and can salvage those clips, let me know! Or any ideas where to order them... thanks!

Thanks for the pic but I do not see it there... it's a c or u-shaped black metal clip that is pressed over the mirror lid hinge/ pivot shaft to keep the lid tight and not flapping around. My mirror is not lighted as yours but I guess it makes no difference.

Loose lids are usually due to metal clip(s) dislodged (plastics housing broken off), and if your lid is loose the chance is the clip may got out of the place... mine was just nested nearby when I took the visor apart.
