    Hello there,
    I wanted to replace some lines that have worn. I need to replace the connectors at the fusebox. I found some spare parts in Aliexpress but am not sure what type are out connectors. Anybody have a clue?

    I've been down this road with no real answer.

    None of the contacts you posted will work properly. You may be able to get them to go into the fuse block but they won't be held in place. The nub on the back clicks into the fuse block and the ears on the front are locked in by the yellow keeper.

    My solution was to buy one of these, https://www.delcity.net/store/ATC-&...0P8gZrZIjQbVl2Z5PjCLniGskKQVwWkxoCEi4QAvD_BwE , and rob a couple connectors. They are spade connection not crimp like the OEM.

    Thats the connector I robbed. Has a spade instead of the crimped end. I inserted the connector into the fuse block and put a female spade on the wire. Im not crazy about the double connection but it works.

    the contacts are held in place with the yellow stripe that slides out from the side. It has a pin to keep it from sliding out freely. Now I need to find contacts.

    Good luck. Even my Hella distributor that has gotten me some obscure things over the years had no luck. Just to add some info that fuse block even though sold as a Hella part is actually made by and Italian company..... MIA

    Let us know if you come up with anything.

    CORRECTION...... MTA,,, NOT MIA

    Missing an ear on the bottom, you think?

    EDIT: can't show both pics on the same post, not sure why

    Just did some more Googling and it seems that is the closest.

    Also I think I came across the MTA part number for the connectors..... MTA 01.00655 or MTA 01.00655/10

    Sorry, didn't test them yet.
    The funny thing is I paid three times their cost for shipment with courrier service and found out they shipped them from a warehouse in my city.
    Damn.
