I need to replace the passenger side UVCH because one of the connections has melted. I bought a DORMAN replacement gasket at O'Reilly's, but after reading some of the comments, I'm a bit skeptical about the product.
Upon closer examination, I see that the connectors are separate from the gasket itself, so I'm thinking that I'll be able to reuse the existing connectors (under the valve cover) and simply use the new gasket for the connections to the outer harness.
One of the outer connectors needs to be replaced as well (obviously) but there were two of them that came with the set, so that shouldn't be a problem.
What is the best way to splice in the new connectors?
Are crimp connections good enough or should I solder them?
Anything else I should be on the lookout for while I have the valve cover off?
What caused the connector to melt in the first place?
Thanks for any insight....
