Does anyone know where to source an Idle Valve Connector for an S3 2.9L, the 2 way black and red plastic moulding with crimps?

Does ford still supply them?

Mines corroded beyond repair.

Many thanks. Richard.

This is the connector - I've removed the crimps and the red retainer is partially removed.

1. Try Ford. I wouldn't be surprised if the valve is or was used on loads of different models, there may be a connector repair kit.

2. Along a similar vein find out the part number of the idle control valve, and see if you can see what other models it applies to. Then if the connector isn't available from ford you can get a connector from any of the cars that use the idle valve from a scrapyard or similar.

Surely you only need the terminals as plastic doesn't corrode or are the corroded terminals stuck in the moulding

The terminals are very likely to be of the junior timer type - https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/680

Yes that looks like it! The plastic housing took a bit of bending as I removed the crimps so would prefer to buy a new complete connector, although crimps would suffice. I've checked around for other vehicles and the only other one is the f350 (truck). Many thanks, Richard
