You don't really need it. Just clean the oil off the PCV valve and the grommet so it doesn't pop up easily. Occasionally check it to make sure it hasn't come out or you will get a check engine light. My '01 doesn't have the bracket over the PCV and it occasionally pops up a little and I clean it off and stick it back in.

If you really want to put it back on I would try a couple small sheetmetal screws.

The only thing inside is the spring, and o ring.
