must be, clearly I didn't get M-6766-A50A even though the invoice says so.

I wouldn’t have known either. The correct part isn’t the easiest install in the world. Simple but you have to be VERY careful installing the bracket to not break the clip that secures the oem wiring harness. Go slow! It’s impossible to replace on its own without a new harness

You shouldn't have to remove the plug from the TB as I would be able to sneak the brkt underneath only the wiring harness on the cam cover itself where the brkt is secured.

Hell, after what I went through I think I would rather have the one you have. Like I said the ones in the past seem to be more of a plug-and-play. Good luck and keep us posted!

I broke the clip. Harness just dangles. Doesn't hurt anything and no one will even notice. I hate that clip....

For everyone who broke the clip, just find someone with 3d printer and make this kind of second clip. Its glued, holds perfect and disengage is super easy. Filament used is ABS.

EDIT: OK, now I see I accidentally broke a different clip than the one you're talking about. Funny thing is, I took that one down with no problem and I screwed this "easy" one up

You got different part, yeah. But it'll work fine even if it was just hanging there like aftermarket catch cans.

@Esset There's no need to disconnect the connector, only move the harness away from the bolt on which it's fixated. Even if it wasn't, like Zelek says, there's no issue or it can be strapped there etc.

I know this is old, but I came here because I just did the same thing. I was trying to be so careful and that stupid clip just snapped with almost no effort. Glad to know I can leave it be.

Just for the record, to release the clip, it helps if you insert a thin nail or something sturdy into its opening behind the latch, which you can notice when you look at it from above, and use it to push the latch towards the end of the bolt on which it is hanging. The latch is clearly designed to be a one way only.
