Got it thanks. That is called the hinge clip for the air intake resonator, In the picture? it is broken off the lower edge of the air intake, the plastic part, it is not the throttle body part but rather part of the air intake resonator tube assembly. That would be dealer item or junk yard. You can see if you look close at the clip, it has plastic on the edge, that6 broke for the plastic intake, here is a file to look at showing it
