Electrical connector to horns

I'm replacing the horns in my 2004 MCS. The OE have a one-piece modular connector; the replacement horns have spade lugs. I really don't want to disturb the wiring harness in case I don't like the sound of the new horns. Anyone know where I can get the connector? TIA.

I snipped the OEM, put them away in a safe place and then added the female crimp on fittings.

I like my car but there are certain times that I do squeeze the crap out of a buffalo head nickel.

They are the same plugs that are used for the side lights, you could buy a cheap set off ebay and cut the connection section out to make an adapter somehow?

When you say 'side lights' do you mean the wheel arch lights, or the lights directly below the a-pillars?

You can separate the connector off the OE horns (it pops off). Take a few tools to a local scrapyard and salvage them off a donor corpse.

Then you can butcher the spare connector to solder to the spade lugs on the new horns. With a few minutes cutting and bending, you too can have Hella Supertones with OE MINI connectors.
