'86 325es Electrical Connector ID Help

I bought the car with the Idle Air Control Valve electrical connector cut off. I have been unable to find a part number or replacement connector. If any one has one of these cars would you please post any numbers that are on the connection, or plug housing. 1986 325es.

Never worry, Im gonna look up the connector on alldata. I KNOW enough its a 3 pin connector. And what idiot in the right mind would cut this very important engine control connector? *sigh and shakes head with a facepalm* stupid people these days. And alldata is anything but helpful. it gives me plenty of schematics but I cant find the connector number.

for the 86 325es its actually a two pole connector, on the idle air control valve.

I saw that on Alldata too. But it did not have a connector number on that wiring diagram which is stupid. What wiring diagram does not include connector numbers? Go to the salvage yard and try to find the proper connector. Just get the one off the idle control valve. Mine is a 1990 and it has a 3 pin connector on its idle air control valve.

I'm a noob here. Just bought an intact 86 325E and if you could tell me what part that is I will send you a pic of it. Not sure which valve you are talking about. I know that it is probably around the air intake.

The connector that goes to the idle air control valve. Its on the passenger side of the intake manifold.

I've got 2 connectors on that side. Neither one has a part number on it.
