I made the same mistake but didn't bend mine around. You install the clip first and then press the line in.
Well I tried another 30 minutes attempting to shape the clip around so the line would press in no luck. For how big Chevrolette is its like pulling teeth to find a good parts diagram.

I have a clip, and the line, I got a whole LSJ if you're interested. Send me a text if you still have my number or message me
Awesome I’m going to swing by LKQ tomorrow they have a few cobalts if they don’t have any I’ll defiantly buy that clip off you. When did you get a LSJ?
 
I found one on CL a few weeks ago, bought it for the S/C and parts to give my 2.4 a little boost. Guy was in Mt. Olive so not far from you, I guess he works at a junkyard or something. I'm heading down to Wilmington tomorrow afternoon so could meet up with you on the way, otherwise won't be back till Sunday night..

Wes was kind enough to meet me today and give me a clip looks like I’m also going to have a spare LSJ woot! So he gave me the line and clip and the adapter still will not attach to the line with the clip inserted am I going crazy?

Maybe I did mine wrong, but im pretty sure you remove the clip before inserting the line. Pop it out with a small flathead screwdriver, push the line in, and then push the retainer clip back in. Should be super easy.

I sure wish I would have thought of this earlier. I took mine off today so I could remove the old clutch line and remembered the issues I had with it too. The clip does NOT go through one hole and out the other. The clip straddles the two holes. It's just the opposite that you would think that it goes in. Try that and it should pop right in. But you probably already figured it out by now. Maybe it might help someone else.
