Plug for Rear Window Heater?

Recommended Posts

I had good success this last winter using an electric blanket to keep the plastic window warm in top down, freezing weather :D Next winter, I'd like to change the power source from the cigarette lighter to the socket near the drivers shoulder harness designed for the the hard top rear window heater.

Do you have a recommendation for a plug to fit this power socket? I'm not good enough with a soldering iron for this much wattage, so a crimp connector, or pre-wired plug is preferrable.

I looked at my hard top. The connector is made by AMP and has AMP and BMW part numbers on them. Like many other electrical connectors used by Porsche. Looks like the same style connector used for the rear speaker kit.

I have chased after electrical connectors before. If you go on the AMP/Tyco electronics site you can enter the AMP part number and it will have info. But Tyco is a huge company and they are not going to sell 1 connector plus 2 pins. I have had better luck at my BMW dealer. The BMW part number is missing some digits but if you tell them it is an electrical connector then they know what digits go in front of the part number and their parts computer has drawings you can look at.

Or, buy it from Porsche as a pre made harness for about $12. 986 612 081 01.
