I was taking apart most of the engine in preparation for removing the head and I broke a whole bunch of those dumb plastic electrical connectors with wire wrapped around them. They all still fit together, but it requires a lot less force to pull them apart. Am I going to have electrical connectors flying all over the place when I get it running again or was BMW being overly cautious in securing them so tightly to begin with?

as long as they dont just fall apart they should be fine. how did you break so many of them? they are usually pretty easy to pull apart
