Instrument Cluster Harness Clips

Took the dash apart, and found 1 of the 3 instrument harness clips (molex?) broken.
Does anyone know the part number for the plastic clip (body)?

Thanks!

the part you are looking for is basically a repair kit that includes all 3 connectors.
the kit part number is PNA-721-04-300-020.
the good news, Sunset imports quoted me $26 back in the day.
the bad news, they didn't have it in stock, and so no one else i asked (including pelican parts that used to have the part on their catalog).
i ended up leaving it, as is.

Meir thanks for the info!
However every place I called said that it no longer exists.
Did you do anything special to help secure the harness? Any issues with it ever coming loose? I wrapped a wire tire around the harness and over the clip. Also a good strip of duct tape to be extra sure.

no. i did nothing.
there is no stress on that wire harness, and i guess the connector is large enough to stay in place.
it has been like that for the past 5 years with no issues at all.
a little bit of duct tape can't hurt
