The connectors that go to my coolant glow plugs are falling apart. I have been able to find a part # for it "028 971 782 A" and it sells for around $27. Does this include all 3 connectors, or is this part # just for 1 of them ?
Sorry for dragging up the old thread, but that is fantastic, just the kind of workaround I was hoping to find!I had a similar issue and thought the $75 price tag was too steep for what it was - Especially since the connectors need to be spliced into the original harness which is another place for it to fail.
Here's my original snap on connectors - not much left of them
So, I found that a #10-24 die was the right size and just cut threads on the top of each of the glow plugs.
I then soldered ring terminals on the existing wires and then put them on with acorn nuts and a spacer nut underneath.
Just about free - maybe a couple $ in nuts, ring terminals, solder, electricity, etc.
