Default Trying to replace this screw / fastener clip
96 XJ. One of my top 2 e-fan support screws is missing from where it mounts on that top cross support. There's a small black C shaped piece of metal that's stamped to accept the screw. C piece goes onto the edge of the cross support and then the screw goes through the hole.

Anyone know how I can identify this part number where I can order it, of what this piece is called so I can just look for a universal one? I know I could just shove a screw through it but I'd rather get the right piece.

Found out these things are called clip nuts. Couple different kinds but mine is the turret kind where there are a number of threads that secure the screw. Found lots of them by Doorman at Oreilleys.

Only question now is...the other clip anchors with their screws still in place take a 8mm socket to remove. Does this mean these are M8 screws?

Mopar assist could help you. What I do with queries for some parts is email https://www.moparonlineparts.com/ with photos just so they know what I'm talking about. Found them on google and been buying parts from them since 2 months ago.
