I've got several broken injector plugs. It seems that they don't like to be touched when the temperature is below freezing. The little latch part that keeps the plug locked to the injector broke on several plugs.
On another vehicle I owned, it was possible to unclip the end of the wire (with a small prong end to it) and slide it out of the plug so that another plug could be used. Do these OEM plugs act the same way? I've got a spare harness and was wondering if I'll be able to just swap the broken plugs out of the harness that I plan to use in the car next season. If anyone has a suggestion on how to secure the plug to the injector by other means, please do tell.

You'll probably be fine. The injector plugs on my 1.8 at least are so deep and snug they're a bugger to get off.
I was wondering if there was something you could lube them with to make it *easier* to get them off. I have a hard time getting one hand in there to release the clip and the other to rock it side to side until it pops loose.
Disconnecting plugs in hard to reach places causes me more time and annoyance than just about anything on the car.
