My Ampera granny connector has been damaged (two of the connector plastic 'covers' have been left in the charger port in the car - see photo)

i) How do i safely remove them and
ii) Does anybody have a 'spare' Ampera granny charger I could buy?

thanks
Geoff

You should be able to pull them out carefully with some long nosed pliers. There shouldn't be much force needed as there's nothing holding them in place other than a snug fit in the hole.
More concerning, is why this has happened.
Are the holes contaminated with debris that have created a tighter than normal fit between the plastic cover and the hole?
Doe the one remaining plastic cover on the granny plug show signs of cracking or separation at it's base?

Thanks Garry. No idea why its happened?! No obvious contamination in the holes. I suppose the unit could have been dropped (I'm not the only one who charges it) Surely though it should handle a bit of rough handling? The one remaining shows no sign of cracking though I can't really see down far enough to be sure...

A new plug could be fitted with the right tools, needs a powerful crimp tool. Plugs are available Google type 1 ev plug
