You can get those fuse box connectors still from VAG dealers. They come 
in form of two already crimped ends, and a foot of yellow wire. Same 
(round) connector fuse box is used on VW B3 chassis (Passat, Syncro, 
Santana, etc.) and perhaps some other of that era. If you for some 
reason can't get them, I'm sure there is few of those, and even complete 
good plugs with wires and new plugs in my box somewhere. Let me know.
