source for one cluster harness connector pin

I'm doing the 996 cluster upgrade as documented here:
https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/90-ELEC-996_Cluster/90-ELEC-996_Cluster.htm

but my stock wiring harness does not have the female terminal on pin 9 of the blue wiring harness connector.

I need one single pin receptacle, but the VW part number given seems rather nonspecific and I'd rather not spend a huge amount of $ for another connector. Anybody have a source for the correct pin terminal?

Seems like a difficult thing to find a pin for, but I may be mistaken.
From when I stripped my '97, it looks like the connector for the airbag sensor is the same/similar as the ones that go into the cluster. I'm not going to be using that, and I don't think it's worth much. If you think you could salvage a pin out of that, you can have it.

I have stripped wire harnesses from some Boxsters, Audis, and VWs. I can probably find what you need. Can you post or link a pic? Do you just need 1 pin/wire from the harness connector?

thanks for the offer guys. Hopefully this image will upload. I don't think the airbag connector pin will work. I need literally just one female pin receptacle like this shown. if I knew exactly what size/type of pin I'd buy one but it seems there is a multitude of options out there. the alternative would be to remove an unused wire and splice that pin onto my lead from the oil pressure sender.

I've got a few. I'll send you a some pins with a foot or so of wire. Just PM me the address. My cost is whatever a postage stamp is these days, so lets just call it one beer owed.
