Default plastic clip that holds throttle cable broke off

I was driving somewhere yesterday and after I shifted I went to put my foot on the gas but the pedal was lying on the floor. I pulled over and found the throttle cable had popped off where the yellow clip holds it in place. I looked closer and the yellow clip is cracked so it wont stay in place. Does anyone know the part number for this? Do I have to replace my whole throttle cable or just this plastic clip?

This isnít my engine by the way.

Mine broke too, not the same as yours, but I used a cotter pin to keep mine on.

This comment isn't probably going to help you at all now that I think about it.

A cotter pin might actually work temporarily for me. I did some research and I looks like I will have to buy the whole cable because the yellow clip is built into it.
