HELP!!! Mystery clip found while replacing clutch for 97 TJ

I was in the process of replacing the throw-out bearing (release bearing) and I found this clip sitting at the bottom of the transmission housing. I have no clue where it came from. I don't think its from the old release bearing but not 100% sure. I'm not comfortable putting back the tranny unless I know where it goes. Thanks all. Hopefully someone will answer quickly.

Mystery solved!

Thanks to both Marka2K and MeanMax at They figured it out! It's a Spring Clutch Release Arm Pivot Retainer (Part# 4338 855). Half of mine was missing. Big thanks guys!
