GPS Connector at WindShield Broken

Recommended Posts

I had to remove the black plastic shroud at the base of my windshield yesterday to get to a broken piece of plastic (the cabin filter latch broke off apparently). In the process I found that the cable that connects to the PCM GPS is severely messed up.

I suspect this damage occurred when the original owner had the windshield replaced from a crack. He had it done by a Porsche dealer but it looks like they may have rushed the job and broken several hidden parts in the process.

When I disconnected the blue clip from the GPS sensor, two small fragments of metal fell out. Based on the size of these pieces, I can tell there were 5 of these little "wings" when new. I found that the fragments are what used to be the outer connection for the plug. It’s very hard to explain but these pieces that have broken off are similar to the pieces that I’ve drawn arrows to in this picture…

Has anyone had to replace one of these? I cringe at the thought of having to replace the whole wiring bundle and harness. In fact, I’d say that would be impossible to do.

I’m not sure what this part is called so I’m not sure where to even start my search. Perhaps it’s a RF connection or some sort of mini-coax connector.

Hello!

997 612 060 25 (#26 below). ~ $75

And yes, it looks like it connect to multiple devices, but perhaps with a new cable it could be spliced in? Or perhaps find an aftermarket gps antenna with connector that is similar? Garmin for example. Looks like it might be an MCX connector but not sure.
