Fuel pump electrical junction plug

99 4.0 5sp with 19 gallon tank. While troubleshooting my non working gas gauge I found that the 4 wire connector that sits on the vehicle side of the fuel pump is bad. 2 of the 4 wires broke off right at the little receptacle. Does anyone know if these plugs are standard and available at parts stores? Cant seem to pull it apart in order to splice the wires in.

Pull the blue separator out of the plug, then release each pin (as necessary) with a pick or small screwdriver.

Cant get the blue receptacle out unfortunately. Hoping chrysler sells the pigtail. NAPA and autozone don't.

Check out Airtex/Wells p/n 1P1645. Looks like it might be the same.

I searched this weekend to find the wiring harness or the pig tail that would match up. No luck. Instead I purchased a 4 wire trailer hookup kit and spliced into the 4 wires. I was able to squeze crimp connectors on, secured the wires with tie wraps and then wrapped in cold shrink wrap. Turned the ignition key, heard the pump do its thing, and the guage reported my fuel level. Success!
