The other day I was attempting to take off the EGR valve and before I got to it, i broke the plastic connector that hooks up to it. I've been trying to find another one online but I can't seem to locate one. I also went to my local O'Reilly parts store but was told they didn't carry the part. Anyone know where I can get one other than the junkyard? Or other suggestions on how to fix it?

A junkyard is the obvious choice for something like this. Why not?

If it can be assembled back into the valve enough to make good contact, hold it in place and coat it with hot glue. I use hot glue to cover and seal lots of electrical connections. It holds up to water, vibration, dirt, etc. And I doubt it get near warm enough to melt high temp glue in that location.
