500 tailgate wiring part 2

Guys are these ends on my tailgate repair crimp ends or do I need male connections? Iím struggling to find ends that slot in or do I put the wires in and crimp? Iím thinking no as the small ones are tiny .... can anyone recommend any on eBay?

They are crimp fittings, use a proper crimping tool/pliers

Actually I'm not sure looking again

There is a metal tube.. in a plastic sleeve.

If you look carefully.. the amount of plastc overhanging is equal both ends..
I would say CRIMP

study the repair threads on here..
bet their cables look pretty similar
