Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

In your second picture, the little tab is what locks it in place. You need to enter from the fron and push that little lock tab down and then the connector will pull out the back. Sometimes very easy to do and sometimes not so much. Once you learn how, you will never go back to cutting and splicing again.

Proper crimps and wire selection are subjects that may be upcoming.

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

Study the new connector , there will be a small angled tab on the metal part that catches inside the plastic when you push it in once you see that tab a tiny screw driver inserted between the metal and the plastic will release it . All my electrical supply's come from Dell City , won't work for one time use because it's all sold in bulk but it sure works good for me .

Re: Where can i source electrical connectors

if you want a truly cheap and fast fix, do like I did on my E30 Beemer.
I simply cut out the offending multi-pin connector, spliced in a bit of wire, soldered and heat shrink wrapped it back together.
