Cheap fix for broken crank sensor connectors

Post by 69BMW2002NH » Wed May 06, 2020 2:56 pm

In the middle of a 1983 633CSI engine swap and my crank sensor connectors crumbled during disconnection. I fought with the idea of buying two new sensors $$$ - but decided to see if BMW sold the connector separately. They only sell the female connector. I popped it into Mouser and then was able to find "compatible products" and found the male connector. Price for two of the connectors was under $20 delivered to my door. ... uR1Q%3D%3D

Here are some photos. -- Hope this helps!

Thank you!

I dealt with this same thing and tried to grab a Bosch connector off some other brand CPS connectors but it didn't quite work so I will order those instead!
