Hard drive plastic clip. Any idea where to get?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get a plastic clip so I can put the hard drive ribbon cable down?       Or perhaps do you know of a substitute for it?   Electrical tape isn’t holding the hdd ribbon cable down.      Thanks!        (Bought this m18xr2 from eBay and they failed to mention it was missing plastic clip).

Those clips are easy to break. Replaced my motherboard when it it happened to my R2. You might search for a fix but Dell did not make these clips replaceable. But If you do find a fix, be the first to post it. Thanks.

Well, it’s a fix I guess.  I cut plastic from an items (a flash drives clear plastic packaging)  I bought.  Then I wedged it in front of the cable to hold it in place.  Hard drive reads again , but I’m not sure how stable or consistent it will be.   I’ll probably also put a short piece of electrical tape over it.    

 

Right now though I’m busy trying to get my gpu to work right in another m18xr2 forum.
