Default Broken fuel line retainer (replaced)

I noticed that the plastic fuel line clip near my EGR valve is broken. Is this another one of those expendable parts, or should I look for a replacement?

You should be okay if it paranoys you grab one from a junk yard or throw a black zip tie on it

So it'* one of the less-useless clips, brackets, and shields? No problem. I've got a small junkyard shopping list anyway.

I didn't say useful or useless. It'* a small plastic part. They don't care if it'* cheap small plastic.

I think it has merit because it keeps the fuel lines from bumping the egr sheild.

Super glue did nothing to fix the old one, but I was able to find a used replacement.

For those curious, it'* officially called a "retainer" and the GM part number is 25623651.
