You can take the connector apart
But like wilcom said just leave it together and remove the grommet and the plug will go thru the hole 

here is a short video on removing the connectors from the housing

Pannier key and crack

Hello,

Many years ago I lost my key to my panniers - is it possible to get replacement keys or even change the complete barrel?

Also, I just notice that one of my panniers  has a crack in it - can anyone recommend the type of glue I should use here?

See photos

There should be a number inside your latch (visible when the latch is in the open position) that corresponds to the key you'll need.  Where to buy - not sure in Europe.  They appear in places like ebay here in the US but they can be kind of expensive (to me).

I believe these panniers are made of ABS plastic and there are a variety of ways to repair that material but it will need to be something compatible  with that.
I've read  about ways to do it with acetone, and also plastic welding. I think with acetone, and a crack that large,  you might need a piece of ABS to try and fill it.
If you search online for "ABS repair" you'll find many How-To's and some videos on the various methods.
Also - in the US, the plumbing supply section at the hardware store will usually have ABS adhesive, solvents, etc., for that type of plastic pipe.

I don't  know  about  the  product but here is a very detailed write-up  on a similar  repair.  I love how he used the milk container to match the texture.

BobRoller - I have not tried plastic welding but have been wondering how well it works.  I've seen a lot of talk about it online and some positive reviews, but don't know anyone personally to ask.
Ditto with the one from Harbor Freight.
