Diagnostic Port replacement?

Go to solution Solved by Stevenola,

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a replacement for the diagnostic port socket in our '02s?  Mine has lost one of the 'ears' that hold it in place, and when I plug in my diagnostic tool, it doesn't always make a good connection unless I hold the socket while plugging in the tool's pins...even then, moving the tool around sometimes 'unplugs' the pins from the socket.


I've found similar Molex connectors, but not with the 2 tabs on either side.

Thanks Steve...I'd searched for an hour before posting, and after posting searched some more and finally found this...

Now I've got to look into pin removers to swap the bodies without having to cut wires and re-wire...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
