Countryman Fuel Filter clips

Does anyone know where I could buy these clips (see photo) in the UK. They are Dorman 800-027 Fuel Line retaining clips. They seem to be readily available in the USA, but I can't find an online seller in the UK.

I was servicing a family member's 2014 Countryman Cooper D 1.6 and found that the fuel filter has a plastic quick connect fitting on one end. However, the single push tab on it was stiff and I don't want to attempt to remove it without having a replacement clip to hand. I have done some research and found cases of people breaking these clips.

I found a case where someone broke the clips whilst changing the fuel filter on an X5. The quick disconnect fitting on the Countryman looks identical to the 2006 X5.
