John J, if you are talking about the connector and wire right at the switch, there are some repair choices. Ford did offer a repair"Pigtail". There is one listed on E-Bay (D3OZ-13A411-A) that was originally released for the 73/ Gran Torino so it has a hard shell connector. Since it was a replacement for all previous brake light switch pigtails, the techs just cut the hardshell connector off and spliced it in. The Ford pigtail is discontinued and no longer available at the dealer.
There is another company I have used in the past that shows 14 of them in stock. http://www.greensalescompany.com/
They buy old obsolete/discontinued Ford parts from Ford dealers so what they sell is genuine Ford parts.
If you don't want to go that route, there is a repair pigtail sold at NAPA (just about everyone has a NAPA store in their town) you could probably use. (Echlin EC- 66)
Unless you have damage further up in your wire harness, these should help you not have to dismantle your car to remove your main harness (A Royal PIA)!
