That looks like a variant from the original spec. The risk is the terminals won't fit the housing; plus even within the spec there are two types of terminals (lance-less and clean body) and they require different connector housings.

I think the original part is SealStar HMK 1.2, part #806-026-541. But I haven't found where to order it.

Oh wow you found the OE. Do you know which type of terminals are required for the socket? I tried using some old terminals I had when I repaired my ambient temp sensor on my e46 but those didn't fit correctly.
