    I would love to help but I am need of the same thing.
    I was just looking where to post when I read your post.
    I am repairing a V7 and need the retaining clamp same as you, and also the retaining clamp for the laser.
    I have hunted hi and lo looking for these parts. You would think you could purchase them somewhere for those who do refurbishing and such.

    I have emailed RichsPSXparts but not heard back yet.

    Well I solved my problem... I am just getting parts from a broken PS2.
    Seems the only way I can find them. I have googled and googled looking for retaining clamps and come up with nothing. These items are obviously made somewhere, but I know I sure czn't find them.
