Default Mass airflow sensor clip broke

Hey there

So I tried to take the mass airflow sensor wire off the unit and it broke. I pulled out the red tab underneath it but I guess it didn't unlock it all the way or something and when I pulled it off there she was gone. It looks as though I could just replace the connector/clip thing but I have no idea what to call it to find a replacement. It doesn't seem like something that should require the whole harness be replaced but lately I've been the big rather than the windshield per se so I wouldn't be surprised if I fucked it up and it's going to cost me 100's

If anyone has any insight it would be much appreciated

You can get the mass airflow pigtail and just replace that

The pigtail is just the clip/connector that I broke then? No cutting or soldering? Awesome!

You can buy a pigtail or grab a few of them at a U-pull (other Ford vehicles use this connector + MAF and that pigtail/connector should be silly cheap at any u-pull) and from there you can extract the six wires from the pigtail, extract the wires from your damaged connector, and without hacking/chopping the wiring harness for this simple repair, you can replace only the damaged plastic housing of the connector.

I did see a special tool you insert into where the connector is and move a locking clip to the side and pull back on the wire that has the connector on =replace connecting piece and
good to go =saw it on google ''how to disconnect auto electrical connectors'' good luck
