    Let me add some part numbers :

    Female spade connectors for older VW relay sockets are still made by Hella. These fit A1 and A2 chassis, possibly A3.

    # 87279 is the bigger .375" tab
    # 87272 is the regular .250" tab
    # 87276 is the smaller .187" tab

    I bought a battery cable crimper so if anyone needs anything crimped between 8 and 4/0 lemme know.

    I got these crimpers:

    But these look good too:

    http://eagleday.com/elparandtool.html

    Best terminal removing tool I have found is the one I made and it was free. Even used it today. Find an old style windshield wiper and salvage the thin metal strip from it. Use a file and skinny the tip up to about 1/8" wide. The metal strips are thin enough to slide into the plugs already and are really strong. All the stupid remover tools I have had broke. Maybe the very expensive ones won't but someone else will have to find out

    This is the terminal extractor that I have:

    Works flawlessly.

    ^those guys are fail, they won't sell just the socket, they make you buy the whole connector, which we do not need.
