I would just get a new connector, either from a donor car or
from the (gasp) dealer parts counter. Then splice it on with
some GOOD weatherproofing and forget about it.
I would think any used Audi parts place would have a bunch of
these they could snip off for a couple of bucks. Why hassle with
trying to find some "generic" replacement connector?
