If possible I'd like to get the mate for that connector so that I don't have to touch the stock wiring. I guess I could vampire tap it but I don't have much faith in the longevity of those.
If anybody's curious, I ended up improvizing by using a two-pronged spade connector; one of the prongs fit perfectly into the conducting part of the connector, and there was room for the other prong to the side. I then taped it all up and zip tied the wires together on either side of the connection to absorb any stress. Not the prettiest connection, but it should hold, and will be easy to revert back to stock.
