CRD ECU/PCM harness
Hi guys. I'm a first-time poster, long-time forum stalker. I've had a WK CRD for about 2 years now. I got the eco tune from GDE a few months ago after rave reviews here, and I love it! Unfortunately, a couple weeks ago, some genius turned left in front of my fiancee and she t-boned him hard enough to put it out of commission. The field adjuster originally claimed it would cost $6,000 to repair, but he left a ton of stuff out.
Fast forward to today, and the shop that has it has estimates the cost at $12,000 and they tell me they're having trouble even sourcing the connector to the ECU, which they believe was damaged in the accident (pic attached - point of impact was the driver's side headlight). They work on a lot of high end, odd vehicles, so if anyone in the city could source it, it would be them. They're waiting to see if the insurance company wants to total it out, and I hope they do.
I love my WK and I will buy it back and rebuild it, but I fear running into the same problem as the shop that has it. I can and will tear it apart and build my own connector if I can't find one, but I'd prefer splicing in a new one first. Soldering and making harnesses is second nature to me. Any thoughts on where I might be able to find a new connector? I assume they're different than the gassers - right? Is it the same as the one on Sprinters and E320 CDIs, or am I going to have to source one out of Europe? Thanks for any help you can provide!
