Is it ok to drive without the hood support clip or would the support rod rattle around and cause more problems?
The hood support rod may move around a little and also rattle a bit, but should not cause any problems or interfere with anything. If you want to have the lock clip replaced then have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic replace the clip on your next service visit.
