Transmission Connector 5R55E(Junkyard searchers?)

Hey guys, as some of you know, one of the connectors on my transmission is broken, which ultimately results in my getting the O/D Off light. It's extremely annoying having to manually check the connector before I drive on the highway, so I need to find a replacement. I would like to see if any of you guys who frequently visit junkyards could keep an eye out for the connector, or if you guys have a parts truck with this connector you'd be willing to spare. All I need is for you to undo the connector, and cut the wires, I can take care of them later. As a bit of info for taking the connector off, the metal tab in the pics needs to be pulled up, and towards you to unlock the connector. Once this is done, the connector comes right off. Oh, and the connector needs to have both of the plastic posts that the metal tab pivots on intact, or else it's no better than the one I currently have. I'm not entirely sure if I need to find the same exact part number connector or not, but the number on this one is F57B14A464JC. This is on a 2003 5R55E. Now for the pics.

If you look at the next pic, right by the little hole that has the blue thing inside it, you can see where the plastic post broke off, and how the metal locking tab comes up. When this happens, the connector slowly vibrates off the trans on me, and then the trans doesn't get an accurate reading from one of the connections, and it throws the light. You can see how high I have the locking tab pulled up, I shouldn't even be able to do that.lol.

This is where the connector is located on the trans. The blue thing is just a cover for the wires. The connector is under it. This picture was taken while looking up at the connector while laying on my stomach. The connector is in front of the NSS/Gear Selector(The big black half circle thing), closest to the engine. It is on the driver's side.

I really appreciate it if you guys could keep an eye out for me. I can't seem to find a truck close enough to mine in any of my junkyards. If anybody finds the connector, please PM me, it's extremely greatly appreciated. :)
