Default Brake Fluid Level Sensor Wiring

I have a problem with squirrels eating my 2012 F150 wiring harnesses. Latest is a simple fix, I think.
The wires going into the brake fluid level sensor connector are chewed off right to the connector. Can sort of guess at color of the three wires. What I am looking for is a wiring diagram so I can splice in a new connector. New connectors are available with a short length of black wire on them. The remaining body wire harness has color coded wires I can connect to.
Any help appreciated...including how to get rid of squirrels. Shooting them is not an option where I live.

Thanks
John

Buy a bag of Sulfur (available as a garden fungicide, and as snake/deer repellent) and sprinkle it around the parking area, and under the hood. A leaf blower is a good way to spread it around. I'd also jam some rat poison tablets under the hood so nothing nests up in there again. I live in the woods, so I have to keep it in all my vehicles, including my mowers & golf cart.

Click the big red WIRING DIAGRAMS button when you see it. This diagram:

...indicates that the common pin (1) is Bk/Gn (Ground); the "low" pin (2) is Gy/Pu; the "normal" pin (3) is Y/Gy. If you look VERY closely at the connector (after removing it from the switch), it might have pin numbers molded in.

How do you actually remove the electrical connector? Where is the release tab?

The release is on the underside of the connector. I used a small screwdriver to push on it. I think it pushed up to release. Can't recall that for sure.
