Red Snap Fitting in Intake Manifold?

Hello, I own a 2000 9-3 and recently replaced the vacuum hose assembly, and in doing so managed to break a little red snap/clip that secured the vacuum hose into the (what I believe is the) intake manifold, so now when I try to drive the pressure pops it out and causes me to stall and lose power. I'm assuming I can't just super glue it or something in there, but I have no idea what this part is called or where to find it and was hoping somebody here would be able to assist me.

Quote:
The second is a round fitting with a little red clip that secures the nylon hose that goes to the brake booster - if you gently pull upwards on the nylon hose it should be snug, and should not pull out of the fitting in the inlet manifold. If you can pull it out, the little red snap retainer is broken, and you will need to replace it.
This was a paragraph I found from a post years ago that I think describes the part that I'd need, and this is a picture on google showing what I hope is the little red fitting that I'd need.



An auto parts store said it might be an intake retainer manifold bushing?

If this information is specific enough for anyone to be able to help me it will be much appreciated Thank you

The part number is 5557389, to get the red snap fitting you have to buy this hose adapter. I snag good ones from the junkyard when I can find unbroken ones.

It's the same snap fitting as the brake booster pump lines and the intake mani vacuum lines use.

Okay, so all I have to do is snap the hose adapter into the manifold and snap the hose into the adapter?

You just pull the red fitting out of that adapter, and pop that into your existing bushing in the manifold. You just have to buy it along with the two black parts.

Would there be a way to buy just the red fitting do you think? I'm calling my Saab dealership in the morning to see if that's possible and/or cheaper.

Right, same price as the Saab one - Gecko, no, as far as I'm aware you have to buy it with the black plastic plug.
