Default broken clips {updated!}...

So i was in the process of removing the TB today and I kinda broke a couple of clips....
one held the electrical connector to the MAF Sensor....the other led to something else on the TB...not really sure.

So what can I do? I imagine i'm gonna needs these clips. Are they available at any part stores? is there a possible work-around for the time being?

thanks

EDIT: I also can't find the last nut/bolt....{i got the one towards the front of the car...and the one that'* near the top of the engine}...i'm also kinda "stumped" on this step {i'm having trouble finding the rear head}

4. Look carefully at the throttle bracket. You'll find that it'* attached to the throttle body AND the rear head. The heatshield for the crossover pipe should be removed first in this situation. Remove the nut on the head stud, remove the bolt on the back end of the heatshield, then remove the heatshield entirely, and the stud as well to release the back portion of the heatshield (L27'* are a mess, you'll need a universal for this procedure for the farthest forward attaching point).

So do i have to do that step to get it off, or can i skip it?

thanks. I'll have to see if i can pick them up from a local parts store...i can't really afford to wait for the part to be shipped unless the car can run w/o the clip to secure the connectors to the sensors?

Anyway, i also found the header and the other bolt that i need to get the TB Bracket off all with the heat shield. Those will be coming off tomorrow along with the TB itself. I think i'll take some pics too since I saw a thread before of someone looking for some. It would be good to have for future reference.

If you broke the tab on an electrical connector, forget it. I have two broken tabs on my 93, and I've never had a sensor problem.

My MAF, TPS, and IAC clips were broken on my Ciera. Never had a problem.

Your TB gasket should be black plastic with silicone inserts (either orange or blue depending on manufacturer).

Clean the SC and TB mating surfaces and wipe clean and dry. Use no lube or sealant. Use a NEW gasket only. Do not re-use an old one if it'* over a year old.

That is the IAC. Soak it in some light oil for awhile.
