3.5L Ignition Coil plastic connector replacement

Hello everyone, I've found that 2 of the 3 plastic connectors for my ignition coils have basically disintegrated and are not keeping a solid connection. This is causing random misfire codes and of course poor drive-ability.

Has anyone found a good source to buy just the plastic 3-pin connectors? I've searched around with no good luck. I don't even need the wires although that would be an acceptable solution as well. Thank you very much for any assistance.

-Matt

Thank you for your response but I'm afraid it looks nothing like the item in the link. - Matt

On the 3.5 the coils are located on Cyl's 2,4,6 on driver side. It is a wasted spark system. Not clear by your picture since you show a 2 and 5 on driver side.
