Relay board spade connectors

Does anyone know what type of spade connectors fit into the back of the relay board on an early 944 (84 year).

I have a temporary solution in place as one the connectors must have pushed out the back when the car was owned by a previous owner. I managed to adapt a standard spade connector to connect to the relay, the only problem is I need to drop the relay board every time I remove the relay so I can push the connector back on.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what the problem is but, you can wire in (including removing the ceramic fuse holders and using the blades) one of these. Naturally, you can put 'em anywhere you want.

Thanks for the message, but this is about the relay board, not the fuse board. Thanks

You can look up any connector in PET and using the part number buy from Porsche or search and find alternative suppliers.

I think it’s #2 which is a generic 6.3 female blade connector and you’ll need one with a clip. It still could be a couple of numbers but N-017-494-3 looks promising and Sunset shows it as in-stock.

Take a close look at terminal. There should be angled metal tab that sticks out back (is that what they cal! Clip?). It bumps up against little plastic ledge in relay board case to hold it in.

First make sure metal tab sticks out far enough, about 2mm/30-degrees, see bottom of part #3 and #4 above. Gently pry it outwards if not.

Next, inspect the relay board slot where terminal goes for location of ledge. Insert terminal oriented so metal tab latchs onto back side of ledge.

In cases where plastic ledge has been destroyed by Neanderthals using screwdrivers to pry out terminal (rather than using proper extraction tool from front side), I rebuild it using 2-part epoxy. Use tiniest precision screwdriver, about 1mm, and dab a litte dot of epoxy on top of old worn-out ledge.
