Honestly if you have no concept of how to do that you need to take it to a professional. Cut the wires off. Strip the wires. Properly solder the wires. Heat shrink the new connection to prevent corrosion. You'll get further in life by learning to listen to the advise offered by others. SEARCH!!!!!

Yes. Many times, in many cities around the world, on many cars, others more intellegent than you have replaced their broken connectors with new ones or good used ones.

Every post you make reminds me of this guy.



Stop with your need to be spoon fed!

Wow, Chris. I don't know why I bother reading all the stuff on this forum when I could have just watched that video and got all my questions answered! And for under $50, too!

So I got this idea, you could start your own forum, install of "the corral" for the 'Stangs', you could call it "the nest" for the 'Birds'. Huh? Huh? Can I get an Amen?

Okay, you may not be as bad as the people parodied in that xtranormal video but seriously, you need to use the search feature here at this forum and google before you ask ANY questions!!!! Otherwise you'll be flamed further and only have less respect when you do ask really good questions.

You know, you can change the plastic connector without cutting, splicing, or soldering a single wire...
