ECU connector - Faulty wiring ?

Hi all,

Ive got a dead 156 (2.0ts 2000 w reg) the lead /plug ( B in the picture) needs replacing. There is a bad connection somewhere near the plug in on of the 20+ wires and the slightest movement of the cable cuts the engine out, or stops it from starting.

Ive got a replacement plug with cables coming from Sherburn Motors ( really helpfull ) my question is:

I need to connect the new plug and cable to the end of the loom in place, just as it appears thru the bulk head - about 6 inches behind the plug.

Does anyone know the amps on these lines, cos i was hoping to be able to use the snap on connectors that go thru the insulation and i think they are rated at 8 amps, these are like the ones you use for speaker cables etc. Mainly because trying to solder and shrink wrap them all will be a nightmare! or do you think i would be better with the inline crimp connector thingys!

As you can probably tell...electrics aren't my strong point

Any thoughts or experience in this?

I wouldn't use the snap on type you will end up back where you started
