Default motor harness pins are falling out.

The Brown connector on the drivers side had 4 pubs that have come loose. I removed the lock fully reinserted the pins and replaced the lock but they won't stay in.

The pins don't look damaged.

Has anyone has this happen?

I had the same problem with my 06sti. It happened after i broke a motor mount at the track, I had some wheel hop and it snapped the stupid plastic engine mounts. This caused the same harness to separate from the pins in the exact same way yours are. I'm pretty confident in saying the donor car this came out of was possibly flipped or hit hard enough to cause the connector to be damaged. I found these pins at my local subaru dealer, the master tech had them in his electronics repair kit. New pins "may" lock tightly into the harness. Your other option is finding an undamaged connector and rebuilding it, or finding a whole wire harness and rewiring the whole thing. You can most likely get away getting the car running before you tackle the harness, either way good luck.

The problem was a broke connector. Im assuming (based on the way the wires run that someone pulled on the wires to separate the plug). If you try to straighten the plug up with a wires it puts extreme tension on the 4 wires pulled loose.

My solution was some of the best exopy I've ever seen. Dried Almost instantly. We pulled the rubber grommet behind the back back from the wire a little, used needle nose on the pin in the connector to get it firmly in place then dabbed each wire one at a time. Pretty permanent fix as far as this connector goes but I cut the one off my other motor to keep if anything fails.
