P80 P2 Coil on ignition - Replacing ignition coil connector housing

Post by prwood » Wed Nov 15, 2017 6:49 am

I'm looking to replace some of the housings on my ignition coil electrical connectors, as the tabs have broken off and they can slide off pretty easily. I am guessing it's an easy enough job, but I don't have any experience replacing connectors so I wanted to see if anyone here had some quick instructions or a link to a how-to. Thanks!

Pretty big job - a lot of slicing and splicing.

It would be ok workmanship in my humble opinion to just secure the connectors with a zip tie around the coil to keep them in place over a lot of electrical connections that don't 'belong' and are in hot environments

Interesting, so you can't just pull or cut the wires out of the old connector and crimp them into the new one? The only wiring connectors I've done in the past are Cat-5 and Coax, so I guess I figured it would be similar...

I think you can get that connector as a repair part (DQMOT) but it will be pigtailed - and those connections I wouldn't like on top of a hot cylinder head top.

DQMOT - dont quote me on that

*** I might have stripped off these from my 1999 parts car - will check. I think I documented everything in the parts thread.

The one pictured above is Volvo Genuine from FCP and doesn't appear to have a pigtail:

Oo, oo, ooo! I know the answer to this one.

I just went through this. There's a tool to take those apart, I found mine on ebay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/11pcs-Car-Term ... 2749.l2649

There are little holes above and below the connector. Trial and error will tell you which tool will do the job. Push the tool in and it releases the fangs that hold the connector in the housing and pull the wire out from the back. I did find that I had to use a tiny screwdriver to bend a few of the fangs back up so they'd grab in the new housing.

I grabbed a bunch of connectors at the junkyard. Essentially free since I was also getting taillights. FCP has new connectors

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... ng-9456341?

The whole job took me about fifteen minutes after I got the spark plug cover off.
