Retaining clip for the throw out bearing.

I'm pretty sure that's not the throwout bearing retaining clip. It's missing a couple bends to secure it and that one looks too thick. Perhaps something next to it for size reference would help.

I'm amazed at how unsure I am about that considering how many times I've pulled the trans out of my car. I guess it's been awhile since I last dropped the trans out of 1051. It's amazing how little work you have to do on these cars when not running at the strip.

that's not like any tob retainer I've seen on my galants.

In the 4 galants I've taken apart, I've never seen that clip. Maybe something with the axles?

Kind of looks like a clip retaining the hood heat insulation.

^^I think he's on to something...It looks like a hood heat insulation retaining clip now that I think about it. I took that off like 3 years ago and now I have a JDM fiberglass hood on there lol. It is pretty small. I found it near the firewall on the brake booster side.

... kinda looks like the clip that retains the little booty on the hood pin switch for the alarm ...

looks like the piece that goes to the plastic clip that holds the power steering line and ac line right behind the motor mount.

Looks like a size reference wiht the original picture (like a quarter) would have discounted the throw out bearing retainer in 10 microseconds or less
Now we can all sleep.
