Electrical connector on BushHog

I have a Bush Hog zero turn mower. The control levers each has a push button switch at their base. One of these has started to fail and I had no problem getting one ordered. These things seem to be fairly standard on a lot of zero turn mowers.
My problem is the female connector that plugs into this switch. It is a four wire connector (although only two are in use) and I can't find a part number for it. I just fee the connector is starting to fail from a poor wire connection to it. I would like to find a couple to have as spares.
I have part numbers for just about everything on the mower but their electrical info is really poor. I think they want you to purchase new harnesses instead of replacing connectors.
The Part number for the push button switch is 50045004.
By the way, the mower is a model no. ES2044 and is about 3 years old.

Thanks for any help.

You could probably use a couple single female spade connectors.

Of course, and I had already thought of that. But the O.E.M. part does cover the top of the switch and offers some protection and I just hoped that I could do that.
Thanks for the reply.
