This might be best answered by a dealer parts-counter guy and maybe someone here can answer before I drive down to the dealer to see what they've got.

I'm wondering if MINI makes wiring harness repair bits available. What I'm trying to do is find a better way to install replacement horns. MINI uses really nice water-tight locking connectors for the lights and horns and I really would like to find a way to use those existing connectors and not cut into the stock wiring harness.

What I'm envisioning is a wire harness section that has the female connector on one end and a couple pieces of wire attached that I can then crimp spade connectors onto to connect the aftermarket horns.

This way I can simply snap the repair section into the existing stock plugs for the horns, thus having a great watertight junction that is completely reversible.

Can any dealer-type folk out there tell me if such a thing exists, and even better what the part number is? :smile:

Go to any auto parts store (like Kragen or Pep Boys) and explain your problem to one of the counter guys. They have lots of misc hardware for this type of situation.
