Check my thread in the VR section. A member has posted a link to the plug on eBay. I am possibly looking at getting one myself. Another member had the bolt snap on theirs.

how is the plug loose?..is it the whole plug or is it just the metal connectors and pins?
if its the whole plug wrap some duct tape with a decent folded tab around the plug and socket and use dabs of hot glue...if you need to remove it use the tab on the duct tape to brake the seal of the hot glue...if it connectors and pins then use an o-ring pick to very very gently close em up a bit....

You should be able to fasten it adequately using a cable tie. Did this for my wife's VS Clubsport and has been fine for the last 15 years.

Oops, just noticed your ride is a VE, in which case you have posted in the wrong forum, and the advice above may not be correct.

If you are posting on behalf of someone else with a VN-VT1, then the advice is correct.

I think the OP has acquired a VR or VS V8 and it's his project car, just not listed in members ride.
