Default Anyone have a lead on a plug connector or pigtail?

Back to messing with my 1997 Boxster. Finally tracked down those pesky pin connectors.

In the process of removing all the old pins from the plastic connector thing, I buggered it up pretty decently.
There's a VW part# on it, but Googling it barely turns up any results even worth skimming over.

Anyone have ideas on this one?
Part number shown on plug is 443 972 523 with what looks like an oddly scratched out part directly after.

Searching online, all I've found is 443 972 523a
And the part is nearly unobtainable.

Any tips?

It shows up as an Audi/Vw part, never seen it listed as a Porsche part so far. Sometimes it's listed a a cruise control module plug, but I'm not sure.

Vaseline before you visit the dealer. KY jelly works too, but won't last as long. Their guy at the parts counter probably won't offer any.


You always pay for what you get. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
It is called dope because it does make you dumb.
Thinking outside the box is difficult for some. They're afraid they'll fall off the edge of the box and be lost to oblivion.
