So i recently broke my rod clip after I installed a new intake. Would this
be the correct replacement part? and is it actually OEM, or would it be better to go buy it from a dealer?

So i recently broke my rod clip after I installed a new intake. Would this Amazon.com: Toyota Genuine Parts 53455-53010 Lexus IS300 Hood Rod Support Clip: Automotive
be the correct replacement part? and is it actually OEM, or would it be better to go buy it from a dealer?




Yup, that's the piece, and around the price they usually go for. I got mine on ebay and it came in a Toyota bag. As often as these break, there's no reason an OEM one would be better than aftermarket.

I bought mine from the dealer for like $34 dollars. Hood Props sounds interesting though.

A cheap fix is to unscrew the broken rod and slide a piece of doublesided velcro behind it. Hold up the prop rod with the velcro.

Great timing, I broke my rod clip over the weekend and the closest dealership is 45 minutes away. I never thought to check out Amazon!
