    I'm looking the removable part of the clip that holds the connector
    for the cam position sensor in place...I've dropped mine somewhere,
    and despite an extensive search and a strong magnet...it's gone.
    Presumably some un-accessale part of the car is hiding it. It's sort
    of square-ish, maybe an inch to 1.5", with a big slot to fit the
    connector...

    If someone's junking an 850 and could send me a clip for a reasonable
    price, e-mail me.

    OK, so I'm cheap...The dealer is 30 miles away....60 miles round
    trip...25 MPG.. 2.4 gallons at a current $2.75 +/-... $6.60 Plus the
    part, don't know the cost, but say $5. Plus lost time ( I'm
    self-employed) 1.5 hours x $50 ( I said I was cheap! ;-p) $75

    So to go get a new clip, $86.50.

    So say $5.00, plus a stamp at $.37...OK I'll splurge, $6??? and it's
    delivered to my door? Maybe I'm not cheap after all!

    Sooooo.... anyone have that little steel clip they'd like to sell?

    Can't you just have the dealer mail or FedEx it to you?- put in on a
    credit card?

    Cheap and Easy is a paper clip and a pair of needle-nose pliers! ;-)

    Izzit better than the duct tape I'm using now? Can I re-use the duct
    tape so I'm not wasting anything? ;-P
