    I am sure this has been asked before, but my feeble searching skills yielded mainly posts about getting the incorrect subject.

    Is it possible to get the (female) pins that slide inside a wiring harness (stereo)? If so, what would I call them, and where would I get them? (Pics below)

    Previous owner hacked of the toyota stereo harness and crimped directly to the new headunit. I want to undo this and go back to the factory harness with the metra adapter. I got one of a wiring harness off a parts truck and I was hoping to get new crimp-on pins that can crimp onto the wires in my truck and slip into the wiring harness. Seems it might be easier than soldering the new harness to the old wires.

    Or take it by your local best buy and have their Geek Squad installer do it for you. I'd charge about $25 in my bay for that. Your local results may vary
