Default Problem?

[V]Any Chrysler techs out there? The other day, I was removing the air intake temperature sensor and cable from the intake tube and I heard a crack. Upon investigation, I found that the cable connector socket had broken. The sensor still plugs in but the red lock tab doesnt latch it in tight. My question:
Can the connector on the end of the cable be replaced or must the whole cable be replaced? I assume the other end of the cable winds up plugged into the ECM but I cant trace it as it dissapears into a wrapped bundle of cables. The car has only about 500 miles on it so would this be under warranty or will I have to pay? How much? Or can I order and replace myself? I know this is a lot of questions, but I really want it to be right under the hood! TIA!

This has happened to others - some aftermarket air intakes require you to move the sensor & some have broken it. You can try a search on INTAKE and see if you stumble on what they did.
Unless your dealer is kind to you, don't see it being under warranty.

Hey if your going to the dealer to order the part you might as well give it a shot at the service dept. first. What do you have to lose

i had a critter climb up and chew on my coil wires and also my MAP sensor wires. Luckily my friends at Bayshore Chrysler let me look through a box of assorted connectors and i found the ones i needed w/ 12" of wire on them so it was an easy repair.
The clips are available also but would need to be special ordered.
