I have a Pfaff 1475 CD, I got my daughter a used Pfaff 6122, (with most of the feet gone missing) partially just because it was there, but also since it used the same bolt on shank for the clip on feet as my Pfaff 1475 CD, then I would not have to buy her all those numerous expensive feet, and she could just borrow from me if she needed one. Her machine does look about like and built like yours. And she really could use my Pfaff zipper foot, which has no enclosed solid sides on it at all. So I think you might be able to, also. Even though her machine has a more narrow stitch width than 9mm at all, and even though my machine has IDT and a cut out for that on some feet, that really does not matter if you got nothing to pull down into there to fit into there or not either. I think all snap on Pfaff made in Germany machines have/had open sided ankles. Yours too, I'm sure of it as can see that in your book.
But go take a look at your owners manual here:
Notice in there on your machine, at least when it was brand new, they show it's ankle for clip on feet, has open sides to it, just like all the rest. But also notice the zipper foot on it in there, oddly does have closed sides on it. And notice it has two bars on that zipper foot, and one gets clipped on to the ankle as normal and actually the rear bar on that closed sided zipper foot in there, actually hooks into a place on the back of the open sided clip on ankle.
So not sure if you have just a clip on foot kind of shopping problem or not, or if your machine has the ankle it first came with on it, or not, or if you got some place a zipper foot that would clip onto what ever ankle piece you just happen to have now, or not, but if you look at the owners manual there, for your machine, you can at least see what the one looked like (both ankle and zipper foot) that they thought you were going to use, when the machine was more brand new instead. And how that closed sided zipper foot (and not a closed sided ankle piece) worked together once, when machine was new. Maybe try that.
I think a lot of people at some time in the life of a machine, actually might change ankles on it sometimes even, just to even use some other feet they got laying around off some other machines they might have too. If you did not get yours new, maybe that even happened?
