Help Me Identify These Zip Ties

My Grand Cherokee was in the shop for an oil pressure sensor that failed. One clips on the harness that goes to the PCV was broken. I stopped by the dealership to get a new clip but they didn't have the same type of clips. I have been having a hell of a time finding the correct zip ties so I am hoping you guys can help me out.

So the original is a brown zip tie with christmas tree clip extended about an inch out. It was replaced with a gray christmas tree clip that is not extended. Take a look at the attached pictures for clarification. I am looking for the brown ones. The gray one is the one that they used to replace the original brown zip tie.

If you're curious, this is on the 3.6L engine on the left side under the engine cover. It is the brown clip attached to the intake tube. The harness goes to the PCV valve.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I know I need to clean the engine bay.

Re: Help Me Identify These Zip Ties

I found a place that sells similar zip ties but they only sell them in 500 count bags.

Fir Tree Mount Cable Ties - 157-00158

Those are the zip ties that some one in a different forum found. I think that is as close as we would get.

I contacted the company website, you provided, but they do not sell to a private party. Also, I communicated with Chrysler customer care and they told me it is only the portion of engine wire harness, not a separate part. They can offer replacing the engine wire harness if I want. But, I do not like it. I visited local body shops last couple of day, they will call me if they find something similar.

Re: Help Me Identify These Zip Ties

More or less the same story I got. Definitely not worth risking breaking more stuff with an engine harness replacement for a zip tie.

Also, who is the idiot at Chrysler that decided to not ship zip ties as a separate replacement item? Zip ties are a consumable item when doing repairs, especially ones with clips.

Re: Help Me Identify These Zip Ties

I found one, which is very very similar. (black colored one in the image)
But slightly different. It is a zipping direction!!
For the black one, it makes circle in bottom of zip tie. But, the original brown one makes in top.

One of my friend, who worked in a body shop previously, gave me couple of this one for me. He is trying to find the exact same one.

Re: Help Me Identify These Zip Ties

Keep me posted please. While it's not a big deal, I'd rather have the harness mounted as it was intended.
