Recirculated air flap actuator wiring mess

Okay, question two on my 2000 SLK230 rescue project... The attached image is the mess I discovered under the hood at the recirculated air flap actuator. I'm not sure why the connector has been removed and this mess subsequently replaced by it. It looks like the connector was cut off of the harness about 7-8 inches up from the end and new wires spliced in with these wonderful ends added.

Does anyone have / know where I can get the proper connector end, used or new, with a pigtail of wiring attached that can be spliced back into the harness properly?

Thank you again.

Jeff

What may also be helpful is if someone could take a couple of HD pictures of that connector and look for any identifying numbers, etc. on it. I believe the harness is a Delphi product, so all of the connectors should be available.

Thanks much for your help.

No picture but here is a screen shot from EPC -- you can obtain a free subscription to this online service BTW.

Thanks. I actually have had an EPC subscription for quite some time, but unless I am missing something, I can't identify which connector is the correct one, even on that diagram.

For anyone that may have the same issue now or in the future... I found a company that has most every connector for the engine harness including the one I needed.

Ballenger Motorsports - High Performance Electronics

They were very helpful, and prices seem good.

Did you get a part number for our bypass valve connectors? I can't seem to use their search feature.

Sorry, I should have posted that.

It is available as a connector kit (with terminals and seals) CONN-75767
Also as a finished pigtail : CONN-85767
