Default Throttle cable clips

There are 3 clips that are supposed to clip onto the alternator cover of my bugeye but there's nothing on the bottom part of the cover that they attach to.

Am I retard and just can't figure out how they clip on or are there pieces missing needed to clip them on??

Here is a pic of the clips I'm talking about circled in red (not my engine bay).

Then a pic of the clips themselves (my engine bay).

Reviving back from the dead. I went to the dealership and they said they didn't have this part. They told me, I would have to purchase an alternator belt cover just to get those 3 clips. That's BS because I'm not spending $50 just to get 3 clips. Any ideas where I can purchase these clips?

Can you get the part #

ClipsandFasteners.com - they typically have everything - but you probably need an actual part # - even if it's from the alternator cover.....

Part # for the clips or the cover? I couldn't find a part # for the clips and didn't even bother to get the # for the cover because I didn't need it. Where I'm at, we only have one dealership in town and I'm not planning to drive far just to get the clips lol. I need these clips because I believe it's part of the reason for high revving while at a stop. There's nothing holding the cable down, so I'm having issues.

It's not the reason for high revs. The cable is in a sheath which is secured by the bracket at the throttle body. Unless your cable is grossly mis-routed, it's not your issue. You can run without any clips, however the risk is that the cable may dangle into the belt area and that would be very bad.

Anyway, they don't show for sale individually on Subaru parts. Can't you make something? Find an alternative fastener? Zip ties? Get creative... it's not a difficult situation.

Edit: went to the link grovlet provided and found:

2nd edit: Or something like these, drill and fit:

3rd Edit: And with a little further looking I found this on FastWRX:
