Should i go to a junk yard and cut the assembly out leaving the wires and splice them all together? any advice asap would be great considering someone is trying to buy my car friday.
Can't you just repair the connector?
Most of them have 2-3 "wings" you can press in to remove the connector.
They make tools to remove them, but it can be done with a small tube that will just fit over the pin or a small screwdriver will work sometimes too.
Once you have it out just solder the wire in place, let it cool and push it back into the connector block.
