Welding wire. Grab like a 2-3 ft. section, bend it in the middle and insert the ends deep in the hood holes where the ending tabs of the insulation used to go.

I believe that the actual clips that hold it up are available online... easiest way to fix it properly. I believe that it is definitely needed as a sound dampener ...absorbs some of the engine noise.

After several mouse "houses" in ours as we keep it outside now, I bit the bullet and just bought one and the clips a bit ago. Under $200 for us out the door.
