Default Throttle Cable Grommet

Hi, I have a 1988 Mustang GT. The small grommet that is attached to the outer most cable, under the air intake, next to the throttle cable has disintegrated. Is there somewhere that I can get this small piece? The cable will not stay up in the hole without the grommet. Any help is appreciated.

Here is a picture of the cable and the hole where the grommet is supposed to be.

If you have a pick-n-pull near you then you can grab a handful of them. Otherwise, it may be a dealer part.

look on ebay for a mustang "TV cable"

I wouldn't drive that car without that attached, you'll burn up your transmission. If you have to drive it find some way to rig it to stay on it. Maybe a zip tie.
