I accidently broke one clip off, stopped to ponder and came up with a what i think is a nice solution:
I went on and broke off the other clip. By doing so, i managed to create an clear path between both logic board screws to the right and left of the ram. then i went and found a thin plastic piece, which i cut to the correct rectangle size and drilled a couple of holes, one on each side.
I then seated the ram in, pushed it down with the plastic rectangle, and screwed in the logic board screws to firmly hold the ram from jumping out.
I DID have to use the longer fan screws since the originals in those places were too short for the added plastic width.
I used the shorter screw on the fan instead.
It works… and it’s pretty easy to do with a simple ruler, exacto knife, and a heated nail… (or more sophisticated tools if you have them).

I repaired one for a customer with a 5mm cable tie I cut to span from the screws on either side of the ram slots. I drilled holes in the cable tie and used longer screws in place of the originals. He also broke the bottom retainer so I added some non conductive filler to keep them both in place when the Bridge is tightened down.

This was my solution. Wide enough cable tie measured and marked to make holes with ice pick. Used existing screws (each with different diameter threads so be careful to not make holes too big). Use fingernail clipper to cut off excess tie. I have photo but don't see how to upload into this post.
