This kit will replace the old-school rubber boot type plastic plug and electrical terminals with a modern version that seals the wires individually instead of relying on a rubber boot. This Bosch-type 2-pin plug fits several important Vanagon components - some of which are listed below. Over the years, moisture inevitably gets past the rubber boot, corrosion sets in and can wreak havoc on your wiring harness. Many times we see folks replacing various sensors, when in fact it is the connection between the sensor and the harness, not just the sensor, that is actually the issue. Inspect these connectors anytime you are experiencing issues related to the items listed below. If you need a fresh connector, we've got you covered!
This plug type is used on various items including:
• Oxygen sensor
• Coolant level sensors
• Fuel injectors
• Late style coolant temperature sensor
• Throttle position switch (TPS)
Fitment Note: We offer two versions of this 2-pin connector. This housing includes one slot to mate with the appropriate sensor or connector. We offer one other 2-Pin connector housing that includes two female slots for the appropriate male sensor to mate. Certain components changed between these two housings for different year ranges and applications. Before buying this connector housing, take a look at the sensor or connector you are going to connect this housing to and verify that it has one or two ridges to mate with and select the proper housing.
This kit requires a barrel crimping tool for installation.
Caution: this Bosch-design electrical plug is the same as on many other components in the engine compartment, some that are close in proximity to each other. Be very careful not to mix them up! Always unplug/plug in one thing at a time whenever possible, label all plugs if more than one is to be removed, for example when replacing an engine long block, or even just the throttle body.
