Question E39 ABS HELP! Broken connector :/

Hello all,
Wasnt able to find an applicable thread so had to post a new one:/ I recently brought my car in to the garage to have my front passenger side ABS sensor replaced however upon doing so they damaged the male side of the connector (the one that is actually wired into the car) So frustrating...guess I am just wondering what my options are and where I could find a new one...I can't find a part number on it, only for the actual speed sensor which is new and un-damaged. Also how would I connect the new "plug" once I find one? Will soldering or crimping new wires mess with the correct voltage needed? Any input would be muh appreciated. Thanks so much!

They broke it, they should fix it.

OTOH, they would probably make things worse.
