headlight adjusting clips

Kind of odd title but anyhow..

My ZJ (1993 5.2) has manual adjusting for the headlights and on the lamphousing there is a special clip that clips around the adjuster thing..

Where can i get that clip or a set of clips to have as spares for when i break them?

Or junkyard, if you are able to extract them without breaking them

Dealer, kolak, or salvage.
Be aware, they're kind of expensive.

Kolak gave me the price of them and i didnt think it was that bad, but the shipping to me is probably going to cost more than the clips are worth.

Padded envelope and a stamp won't cost much.

Get a handful if you're keeping the ZJ for a while. I usually break one each time the headlamps are removed.

I am going to get a couple of them maybe 10 or so, i dont understand why those clips have to be so brittle...or why they dont look like the 2 lower clips that almost never breaks..

I fixed this a few years ago by getting new headlights and some new clips from kolak.
The new clips now live in the same box as new h4 bulbs do in my glovebox, never broken one since then....
