new wiring harness pugs


Recommended Posts

Somewhere, someone must have found a source for NEW e10 wiring plug connectors? Not the metal connector but the white and black plug housings for the pins. You know the connectors that are impossible to clean. That no matter how much you clean the original wiring and retape the harness still looks like crap with the discolored plugs. Someone made these but who and why are they not still available somewhere? I bet they are and someone out thee knows. Please share with us so my wiring finally looks new. I lose sleep at night obsessing over this. My dog is fed up with my tossing and turning all night.

Those connectors aren't unique to BMWs but are from an outside supplier.  Molex is one of the companies that makes those connectors; I'm sure others will chime in with other providers.  This has come up on the fAQ before and there were answers IIRC...the trick is gonna be finding the reference in the archives.

There  is a fellow on the E9 site that reproduces the connectors for relays.      I have lots of the small 2 blade connectors for the tii cold start and coolant time switch           I also have the 90 degree flag connector for the coolant temp switch     Most of the connectors are covered in clear rubber boots which also are easy to get,   The wiring covers are in different sizes of PVC tubing also readily available      The only connector cover that I am still looking for is a square oblong plastic cover for either single or double connectors  

 

Thanks, Rick

Hoping the suggestions above help!  You might want to correct your title to plugs to make this post easier to find for others seeking the same.

Molex is indeed the brand of these male and female connectors.  I purchased a few when trying to convert my 69 to the later TS stalk and interval wipers.  Look very closely at the connectors.  One site even had the drawing of the metal plate that goes under the dash of the Model 71 2002’s.  Let me dig a little.

 

73 TS stalk has plug. I bought a companion to it along with some pins and made my own harness using leftover VW wiring harness bits.

Have you tried an ultrasonic cleaner?

Jgerock, your harness is amazing! How did the conversion to the later switches go? I will be doing some modifications to my wiper switch. I am installing headlight wiper/washers. I did some looking and will try to use a wiper stock from a later M5 that has the headlight washer functions built in along with the regular system. I know I can already hear the purest wailing and shouting heresy. Sometimes daily practicality has to win out. Anything else you dig up will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Indeed a 3D printer would solve many problems – if I had one. I am facinated but have far more to do now than time but perhaps in the future. So for now I must use what is available.

 

No melatonin will not help. Only the reality of actually solving the problem will help. With all the great responses I am sure that a sound sleep is not far off.

Ed- my efforts didn’t pan out.  The 71 wiper motor didn’t work properly, so I was able to find a correct early replacement.   I temporarily wired up a new switch, relay and stalk, but wasn’t able to get the new components to “be nice” to the old motor.  I put everything back to the stock 69 configuration.  My 73tii, however, was successfully upgraded to the interval wiper setup that I purchased from @shermanmartinez a long time ago.

Here are the plugs and male/female pin connectors I purchased from Amazon.  I was wrong about the manufacturer of the (replacement) connectors I found - they are AMP/Tyco Electronics. I used the female pins to match up to the stock BMW TS/wiper stalk socket that has male pins.

 

The male plug is AMP # 1-480274-0.  The female socket is AMP # 480277 (number found on the  connector).

    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
