Default Calling 2001 miata VVT owners

I'm trying to figure out where a bracket goes...'

It's around the power steering pump, driver side of the front engine cover area, and it has a hooked, rubber protrusion to hold up a hose...

Can anyone take a picture of this area? I've looked through google images, and I cant seem to find a good angle, or a clear photo.

I tried to take a picture of the bracket with my phone and upload it, but it wouldn't sync with my computer, I'll try again.

Oh, and i just finished timing belt/valve cover job, if that adds any pertinent information.

It goes on the drivers side of the engine, front. The rubber coated part goes around the coolant line that goes along the bottom front plastic engine cover, facing down. The hole that has the washer wear on it uses the 10mm bolt that holds the engine cover on.

I'll see if I have any pictures handy.

EDIT: Confirmed second 10mm bolt down on TOP black engine cover, drivers side.

I finally found where it goes...it's impossible to take a pic of it. It goes through the bottom bolt of the timing cover right behind the ps pump). Flexy part points down and wraps around a hose coming off of mixing manifold. Gray connector clips into top oval hole.

Edit: Chiburbian beat me to it.
