Air Condition

Please help! I had to replace the air conditioning valve control solenoid located on the condenser part. It was held in by a Snap ring (not a screw or bolt). The snap ring got lost and I went to go buy a pack at the auto store and none will fit. Can someone please tell me where to find the specific one? I have a 2012 gti autobahn 4 door. I can’t charge my ac until I get that snap ring as it hold the control solenoid and keeps the pressure.

Go to Ace Hardware and grab one of each size that you think will be close.
