An "auto recycler"?

I can hook you up, but to buy new, you've got to buy in the thousands of plugs, 10s of thousands of terminals and seals....

do the "auto recyclers" in your area carry male plugs which will mate with the female plugs that are actually on the car? I'm sure what you are referring to is just going to the junk yard and buying plugs out of a wrecked car. Unless Subaru uses male plugs on dongles, thats not going to help me. If I only needed the female plugs, I'd have already been to the wreckers. What I really need to do is to source the male plugs. Normally I work on VW's, and you can get Bosch plugs (male and female), pins, and crimpers from electronics suppliers.

Hi, I sent you a PM about VW connectors. I didn't want to clutter up the Subaru forums asking you about that!

I've been looking, too. I think that AMP/Tyco make the plugs; I've been trying to track down individual contacts to fill in empty slots. I think that they're called timer contacts, but there are at least four kinds...

I have some catalogs on order. Not clear it will help.

Going to an auto recycler doesn't help me, because I'm really after the individual crimp contacts more than the plastic connector bodies...

They are called "interlocking connectors". Radio Shack carries them but they are contact points are round, not flat like OEM.

Thanks. I'm really looking for the OEM parts, to fit into the OEM housings.

I'm looking for these also.

PS. What is the source for VW/Bosch connectors?

Interesting side note, I took apart the connector for some Ford EDIS stuff recently and the connector terminals looked to be identical to some on the Subaru...
