[Warning Light] Airbag connector under passenger seat
#1
Thumbs Up 
I recently removed the passenger seat to get an awkward load in.  
During this process I broke part of the red and green connector which rises from the floor.
Now it's MOT time I have to fix it, because the airbag warning light is on.
I've tried reassembling the connector with the help of superglue. It didnt wotk.
Is there any reason not to use an alternative type of connector? Anyone done this? After all, its just three wires.
Failing that, I will need a replacement connector, are they generally available or will I end up buying another car? ? 
Thanks!

I helped a friend fit a new seat in his Renault Kangoo and just reconnected the wires with three separate bullet connectors and that worked. Can't see why the Berlingo would be different.
So where does this bit go then ?

The connectors are a weak point and many owners solder the wires together to give a positive connection. No skill needed; use a Polyolefin Solder Sleeve and a hot air gun.

Thanks ffrenchie and cumbrian! Just in case I need to remove the seat again I would prefer to use a connector block. There are lots of these on the market, but the wires are very small, 1.4mm o/d, so am sifting through electronics suppliers for something sufficiently dainty.

Get one of the small electrical type 'choc' box type connectors like this one: https://rb.gy/bt9mvw 

less than a couple of pounds.

Thanks multispacer, I ended up extracting the male and female ends from the old connector, and with a bit of trimming and some shrink sleeving, they went into Wago connectors, now all back together... but I still have a warning light on!

Okay, just to check. You have definitely got the correct connector haven't you? From my time owning a M59 Multispace, I remember there were two under my seats one was for the seatbelt warning and one was for the airbag, so have you re-connected both?
