159 3.2 JTS Q4

Just bought a 159 3.2 JTS Q4 (Saloon)

Hi every one!

I Have owned Fiats (13 so far in total, current one is a Punto HGT, owned from new in 2000) since 1978 so I thought I would try an Alfa. I used to work in a Fiat/Alfa dealership in the mid 1990's in after sales service so I know a little about the 'old reputation' but that hasn't put me off!

Anyway, I've dropped lucky (I hope!) with this recently acquired beast as it runs like a dream and everything works except the reverse light. Checked the obvious (bulb etc) but found its the wires have broken to the gearbox switch. So I need a new connection 'plug' to the switch where I can re-join the wires if you follow me!

Any suggestions? Oh and btw, i'm on the Isle of Wight where unfortunately, there is no Alfa dealer
