Default TPS connector woes

Well, today was a day it finally wasn't raining, so I went out to replace the vacuum hose that was broken. Well upon doing this, I pulled off my EGR, IAC, MAF, and TPS connectors, and the TPS one disintegrated in my hands. I was like "(#@([email protected]$(@"!!! Here is a pic of what it did. All the other ones are ok, except for this one.

TPS connector -


What I replaced -


So.. What can I do to fix this? Can I order a end and wire it in? I thought I saw one on rockauto.

You should be able to get that connector and wire it in. Use soldered wire joints if at all possible. Anything else will leave the real possibility for bad signals from the TPS.

BTW, that really sucks... :(

If you have a little time..I'd run over to a junkyard and cut one off a car. They will laugh at you when you try to pay for it. And you don't have to wait for the part.

That'* what I thought about doing. I was gonna cut one off and compress the terminals and pop the new clip on, so I dont have to cut the wires.

Go to NAPA or Carquest and get a new replacement connector. If you get one from the wrecking yard, it will also break. The replacement connectors are made of better materials. Get part number *-564.
