Airbag Connector Plug

Hi,
My airbag connector plug cover is broken. Giving me Low resistance error code on my drivers side airbag. I have taken out the connector plug and found the pins in the cover broken off.

Does anyone have, or know where to get these connectors online?
Seems like a waste to buy a whole cable rapair kit, when I could just replace the connector, or connector cover.

BMW e53 3.0i 2001

If Norway is anything like NZ, there's not much chance of finding an E53 in a wreckers yard - but as the plug is likely to be common to most BMW's of that era, check out wreckers for ANY early-2000s BMW and see if you can get a plug that way.

In the pic you posted...you can see the last 7 digits of the BMW part number for this harness. Try inputting those last 7 digits into the part number search box at any of the online part database sites to see if it is still available. If it is...you can order it from your local BMW dealership's parts department...or the "BMW xx xx x xxx xxx' (where x = the actual BMW part number) into a google search box to see if other online vendors are selling that part.

{in the pic...I can see the last 7 part number digits next the BMW acronym...except the last digit is not legible 8 383 26?}


EDIT: Can't tell if this is what you're looking for because we can't see the entire harness in your pic...but is i #4 in the diagram and link to the part database below?

I have finally found one in Whales on ebay. My local BMW dealer was not of much help. He could not get me even the entire harness, and at the wreck yard they would only sell me a whole door. I googled this number on the socket as you said, its 8383264 and came up with curtain airbag wire, not side door airbag. The dealer could not find the number in his system anyway.. Maybe the bloke I bought this from have been doing some modifications? 😂 Anyway, ordering the part now, and lets just pray its not broken on the pins as well 🙄

Thanks for the help guys.

Why is that? In Norway they, are very common on the wreck yard. I think its because of all the road salt here. And the fact that this is probably the best BMW car with the worst steel 😂

Our wreckers very rarely have Euro cars - almost never. Lots of Asian cars though...

Rust isn't a big problem here (thank goodness!).

There are a few e53s being parted out on local auction sites but the sellers won't pull small parts (like plugs etc.) - only major components.
