Replacing A Damaged Or Burnt Automotive Electrical Connector

In this video I show you how to replace a damaged electrical connector on your vehicle. The replacement connectors are called pigtail connectors.

The connector shown is a 9004-9007 headlight connector but the methods shown in this video can be applied to any connector you wish to replace.

The crimper used in the video is an Ancor 702010 made for crimping heat shrink connectors. I bought it years ago and I believe it’s been discontinued. For an identical substitute search WP042 crimper.
