Default Coil Pack connectors

I've got an 01 1.8t AWM engine. 3 of the four connector tabs that clip into the ignition coil packs are broken. One of them was worse and was giving me a misfire code periodically. My mechanic put some stuff called "dumb dumb" around the plastic connector housing and put a zip tie around it to help. Is there a fix for them without a new harness?
Also, curious about new o-ring my injectors and was looking for some input.
Thanks,

Why not replace the harness?

I was thinking there may be a kit to do it without going into the big job of replacing the harness.

If the wiring is good, you can probably buy the housings from the audi dealership or even find them online. The wiring harness is just $50 from ECS tuning though - so it's probably cheaper and easier just to do the harness.

You can purchase the plastic electrical connector housings for $12.90 each + shipping from AudiUSAparts.com. Let me know if you need anymore Audi parts.

The part # is 4B0973724 and you can add the part number to the homepage of AudiUSAParts.com. Please keep in mind that this is just the plastic housing and includes no wires. If you need the wires they are part # 000979237E. That is one piece of wire with a connector on each end. You would need 2 wires per connector. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Believe that Volvo uses the same connector and it is cheaper from them

Those are the ICM connectors. The OP asked about the coil connectors.

I ended up purchasing the overlay harness from 034 motorsports. Very high quality. Wish I would have bought all their silicone hoses and their updated PCV when mine went bad, but was at the mercy of the dealer at the time
