      Nowhere near an expert here, grain of salt:

      That clip is latched and empty on mine.

      ...tho again, that whole plastic bridge was removed for motor mount work and re-instated by me. I may have missed something.

      You mean the white bar with scraps of tape on it in my IMG_1102.JPG ?

      I think *I* removed something from there and didn't replace it.
