You will never get that wireharnes working properly again. it is a common problem for that era. There are companies that rebuild the pig tail connecter on the e.a actuater(throttle). Engine wireharnes is probably in need of replacement as well. The insulation for that era of german vehicle is meant to decompose and be enviromentally safe. They have since changed there polidies. I hate to say it but your wasting your time trying to rebuild that harness. Just either sublet your actuater for repair or replace it. subletting is alot cheaper

If it's not a coin, look inside the buckle again, compare it with a properly working latch. If you see something inside the broken latch that looks like it may be protruding out from the back, try pushing it back with a flathead or key, then pop the push button back up with the same tool you used... I have to do this each time I get out of my truck because the spring is broken. It still should work fine, it's just missing a spring that reset the latch to it's resting position. If you're still skeptical about it though, it's like a 25 dollar fix with installation.
