Icon4 Clutch rubbing against metal piece: See pictures

Earlier today I was driving and I heard a bolt or something hit my floor from where my pedals are, when I got home I found it and noticed that when I push in my clutch pedal it rubs against the metal piece as seen in the picture; it's as if the clutch pedal needs to move to the right. The bolt that is in question actually looks more like a clip and I'm thinking it may be some kind of spacer. Does anyone know anything about this? The clutch works fine and other than the annoyance of it scraping, there is no other problems.

Up a little higher, than that picture, there will be the pivot bar for the clutch pedal and brake pedal.
That clip looks like it is off the left end of that bar, the bar itself has slid to the right, so come out of the left support and now is at an angle.

You will need to lift the bar and slide it back into the support hole then put that clip back in place.

Found an image of the assembly here: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/95-thru-06-Ra...-/171129231393

Not sure if that clip is from where I thought, could be from the master push rod attachment but that wouldn't explain the offset of the pedal arm???

That's exactly what it was. I was trying to put it back on there, and considering the conditions and positioning it slipped back off and I lost the clip. Will any old snap ring work, or do I need that specific part? If I do need that part, is that a ford specialty or a ring I can find anywhere? Thanks for you're help.

Looks like a regular E-clip, but there may be a thin washer with it, or should be, so the clip can't catch on anything and come off.
Washer makes for a smooth surface so clip can't snag as it rotates when shaft moves.

E-clip is what is in your picture, c-clip is missing that center tab, center tab making it look more like an E than a C, just FYI
