Does anyone know where you can get the 64 way ecu connectors? Mine is broken and I'm having a nightmare trying to locate a new or second hand one.

Probably need to locate a whole loom.
They are reasonably common to come up on eBay.

I don't think they're available anywhere. I spent a few months trying to run some down a few years ago with no joy. Sacrificial loom needed, me thinks.

This lot were as close as I could get

https://www.alibaba....-connector.html

but I wasn't sure any of them were a direct match as they seemed to all be plastic and some of them had minimum order requirements.

Try asking places like efi parts in Runcorn. They might be able to source connectors.

I would be happy to buy the loom for the connectors. Can't find any for sale at the moment though.
I have four th plug of a few websites, but they don't seem to actually sell them. Plus I would rather buy a used one and splice the wires, seems much easier

If your happy with a used loom and 12" wires, then it doesn't need to be a VX loom. Vectra B 2.2's and Astra G 2.2's have the same ECU and might be more available at breakers.

Not sure. I think the Vectra C had the direct injection version of the 2.2 which might mean a different ECU. Doesn't necessarily mean the plugs aren't compatible but it might be a bit of a gamble without confirmation.

Typically there are loads for vectra c. But none for b. Well there is one but it's nearly £200! Which is a lot when I'm just going to cut off the c
Connector and bin it.

Worth a punt for £18.00.
The ecu is different but the plugs look identical.
