 Did I say it was plastic? I'm sorry, I intended to state it was spring
steel metal and clips over the cable/sheath directly on the plastic outer
sheath immediately in front of the metal outer sheath.

> OK, that makes sense... There wasn't any plastic piece there when I
removed it so this will indeed be hard to find. Just curious as to what car
you were looking at, b/c the FA has a little clip looking thing in the fresh
air controls diagram, but it says it's an unknown part for an '85 5000
turbo. I couldn't get the part number for any other years even though it's
in the drawing. I wonder if a place like Dad's might be able to help... If
anyone has access to a junkyard (none here in CT you can walk around or any
w/ Audi's) or have one in your backyard, please let me know if you have this
plastic piece on the cable support. Thanks.
