I know it is a little item, but here is the pic..

They are under the spare tire bucket, they strap the brake line to the metal brackets.
I know that I can just wire tie it together, but that is not quite right.. given a choice, I would get new plastic clips..
I do not see them on Rodney or TFS..
Based on this post..

I may be asking too much.
Anyone seen this before?

Something like this?



Send me measurements for the clip (I'm too old to go climbing under my car to do it!) and I'll see if I can 3D print one?

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

I just used wire clips from the hardware store, I think 1/4", like these



and a short sheet metal screw. Not a concourse-quality restoration, but holds the line in place.

Have used those and they work well. They also come in aluminum with a rubber insert.

If you want the exact GM part, you will need a FIERO parts book. Look up the part number, then try eBay. Also use Google to learn if the part was used on other GM vehicles. On my 88 GT the special bolt (screw thread on one end - bolt thread on the other end) for the Wing, was rusted to the nut. After a good deal of searching, I found the part GM part number. Sure enough, I found the special part on eBay, it was used on various GM car grills. Good Hunting.

Ugh, those books. The phrase "finding a needle in a haystack" comes to mind. I have a bad scan of one here. I think it's part # 22518924, which can be yours for only $29. Really.

https://www.wholesalegmpart...766129/15661756.html

Which is why I used 50c worth of parts I had on hand to replace mine. But they do have a nice diagram and other part #'s you could search for.

That said, you have a point for parts where you really need something specific that can't be easily hand-done like this.

Many GM dealers including online don't list them. go to same site and look in Fiero brakes, BRAKE PEDAL & MASTER CYLINDER MOUNTING number 43 in the img doesn't list below at all.

Those "clips" don't do much. Barely holds if something/someone hits/hooks the brake line.

Many types of plastic or plastic on metal "cable clamps" like dremu above and more will work. And likely do a better job.
Could use small nut&bolt, zip ties, etc. to attach to wall part.

Even nylon zip ties will work just don't pull the ties tight and force the line to bend to meet metal bracket.

Or even carefully drill/melt a hole in OE clips and bolt/tie them to the wall part.

For my Fiero, I cut two strips of 22-gauge steel, then I bent them around a drill bit of a suitable diameter.

To get the internal 90° bend, I hammered a block of wood into the corner with the drill bit still there.

Then, I drilled a mounting hole through both layers, and trimmed off the excess length.

I finished with sandblast + cold gun blue + oil.

Sandblast + paint should also work.

On the tub, I drilled out the existing holes and installed M6 U-nuts. Then, I was able to secure the clips to the tub with M6 bolts. This facilitates future servicing, as the line can now be attached/detached from the tub at will.

The same clip is used on the left rear brake like, under the dogbone.
