Air intake vent shaft missing parts to secure it to the vehicle chassis

Leased a 3 and decided to pull the trigger on buying a new one. Wanted to add a filter to the vent (through frunk) for the new like with the lease. Open it and find the gasket isn’t even connected to the vent shaft. Upon further inspection find out the vent shaft isnt even secured to the car - see picture. Does anyone know the bolt nut size to that those parts? Figured I might as well do it myself instead of going through service. Brand new 2022 Model 3 by the way - tail end of this year’s deliveries.

Yeah… so I tried putting clips in, slipped, and dropped 1 into the interior. Is that a big deal? Will it wiggle itself out in the future?
