40pin connector under truck drivers side.

Hey guys, I recently unplugged the 40pin connector under the drivers seat to clean it out. When I did, I noticed that there was a pin or two that had came loose. My gas gauge does not work. I'm thinking it is one of these pins. What would be the dis-advantage of bypassing this connector and hardwiring the wires. Or just the ones that have the pins missing?

Has any one hardwired this before?

The male part of the connector one of the pins came out I guess. When you look at it and match it up to the female side you can see the female part is still there. I'm going to see if I can remove the cover of the male side tonight. Once in my 02 silverado, I while layed out I drug threw a main harness under the hood. It wasnt bad to solder back together, But then again it wasnt under the truck.
