black connector 4 poles glove box light: ref?

Hi X3 community,

I unmounted to many times the glove box to install my dension, without unmounting the light first. So the black connector to the light finally broke... I would like to find this little piece but realoem doesn't seem that detailed.

Any idea by any chance?

Thanks

Most likely you will have to go to a breaker's yard, cut out the connector and splice it in to your harness.

For my X5 RealOEM has a separate listing of connectors and connector repair parts.

I believe BMW uses AMP connectors. Here is a general current catalogue, you may have to dig deeper, or it may be a specialized proprietary connector.
