    Plugs and repair leads can be got through the dealers... the plug I got for mine (AMK engine code) was 1J0 973 775 A... not sure of the connectors but I suspect they can be bought from TPS/dealer in the same way as the plug as I know they do some repair kits for wiring (yellow wire IIRC) as he has bought similar to re-wire lambda probes for wideband conversions

    My plug change can be found here

    I've just changed mine bud, there are special tools to do it but I just used a hair clip. There's a c-clip inside the plus which needs to be pulled to one side with a small screw driver, then the hair clip pushes above and below the spade/terminal pushing the tabs down (wait until you hear/feel the 'click'. They just pull out easy then. Its a bit fiddly but just take your time n it'll be fine.
