i installed this and it seems to be working fine, but i noticed when my unit retracts the Bowden tube still moves. Any thoughts? It ONLY does it during retraction.

The stock couplings are notoriously bad.
The bowden tube moving during Retraction is unacceptable.
Your best uption is to replace them with better quality ones if this clip didn't help.

I was about to design a clip but found these - both a perfect fit, thank you for sharing :)

only fits the top end of the tube, at the extruder; too small for the bottom end of the tube at the hotend

Here's a Q&D fix for when you don't feel like looking up a proper clip to print.
I found the long strip of PLA that my printer lays down along the edge of the bed prior to printing is good for something. I always have scraps lying around, so one day I picked one up and wrapped it around the pheumatic fitting and just tied a knot in it. Instant bowden tube spacer clip. Today, I finally decided to print a proper one out, but thought I'd share.

Great little pieces. You had already solved the problem I just discovered. Good fit too. Thanks.

Fits great, easy print. Thanks

I printed only clip and it's perfect on Ender 3.
Thank You for that !

Glad it worked

Printed it, the clip fit perfectly but the flag needed some adjusting (all good though).

Works great, nice snug fit, thanks...
