Hello to all. I'm about to change out my fan resistor as I order a new replacement from van cafe and I know the connectors have to be spliced over since it's off the euro van but after looking at my original connector set up its in better bad shape. My original connector from the resistor is gone and just pushed in the harness connector. Looks as if the last owner tried to fixed the connections by hardwiring one of the wires and connecting the others into the harness connector. Could I just buy a euro van harness connector and splice that instead, leaving the new resistor as is? Since my original connectors are toast

Do you guys think it's safe to remove my old harness resistor connector and use one from a euro van? If not I'll to search for someone parting out a vanagon..

I can supply a good used connector with a few inches of wire.

Pmail me.

I just spliced in three 1/4" spade connectors, all booted & tubed. most replacement resistors don't have the original plug anyway.

Sending a stock resistor and harness pigtail.
