I have a CCFL inverter for my car's headlight angel eyes. It seems they all respect some standard connector, but apparently the manufacturer of my headlights didn't get the memo :P, so until now I've been cutting wires and stitch them together on my car. I decided this has to stop and want to make a proper plug-and-play solution.

The problem is I can't identify the type of connector they use.

This is the connector that I want:

This would be the female connector, that I don't need but I thought it may help to identify:

    \$\begingroup\$ @LeonHeller: its an "identify this connector" question which is far from a shopping question. Those seem to be allowed (I have a few in my history) \$\endgroup\$ – Bryan Boettcher Mar 25 '13 at 18:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think your question is OK, but dumping 5.5 Mpix images on us is not. All the necessary information would be there with a little cropping and then downsizing to 630 width. This is like saying you need a 10.0213 Ohm +-3% resistor, but more annoying since the browswer scrolls slowly. \$\endgroup\$ – Olin Lathrop Mar 25 '13 at 18:51

I believe I've manage to find it, but I still don't know how is it called.

I know you can't identify the headlamp connector hence the film show but, can you identify the connector that would plug into the new invertor? If so, buy a mating half and swap the one shown in the picture. It's either choice A or choice B

    \$\begingroup\$ This IS the new inverter. In the first two pictures is the connector I need, and the bottom 2 is the connector it plugs into .. \$\endgroup\$ – Nicu Surdu Mar 28 '13 at 11:53
  • \$\begingroup\$ @NicolaeSurdu - if you cannot find a connector that suits either end then swap both ends with connectors you can source. OK it's better to find one end of course!! \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Mar 28 '13 at 12:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ This is what I'm trying to avoid: not being plug & play, to have to cut wires and stuff each time I change the inverter (which fails a lot :( ) \$\endgroup\$ – Nicu Surdu Mar 28 '13 at 14:45
