Power Seat Problem

I have a 2000 National Tradewinds 7371 with 6-way power driver's seat. The gray plastic part (pictured) where the incoming wires terminate is broken on the back side where the wires attach. This broken plastic part is the "female" part which connects to the "male" back side of the seat controller (pictured). All I really need to replace, I think, is that broken part on end of the wire harness. Next best case I replace the wire harness with the unbroken plastic part and just plug into the seat controller. Next case, replace harness and seat controller. My problem is I have searched high and low, including salvage yards, to no avail. I am told that the harness and controller are Ford parts....Ford is no help. Last possibility, maybe I find ANY 6-way harness and seat control (assuming any of them would work) and wire them into my incoming wiring from the power source. The only problem there is that I'd have to make the new seat controller fit where the old one was.

National can't help......they're out of business.

I'm wondering if anyone knows if my seat is by Flexsteel? I'm told that is likely. I sent an email to Flexsteel and am waiting for a reply.

On MOnday I'll start contacting larger salvage yards, online to see if they have exactly what I am replacing.

Any thoughts appreciated!

Looks like a older GM control 70's and 80's there are some on eBay that look like that.

Though I don't have a Flexsteel seat I have found that that the Flexsteel wire harness and seat switch are exactly what I need. With a choice of used from a salvage yard (though I have not found that yard just yet) or new for $110 plus S&H, I opted for the new parts which I'll have in a week or so. Putting it all together should not be difficult. Life is good!
