To do this though follow these steps:

1. Car is warm
2. Place in Sport, wait for valve to open.
3. Disconnect plug from valve motor.
4. (Optional/recommended) Tape the end of the plug with elec tape or something similar.
5. I reconnected it to the motor and made sure it was snug. It protects it from the elements.

And thats it, the valve will always be open. Its easier than the older vacuum ones.
Surely the male terminals on the mating connector will pierce the electrical tape and make contact with the female terminals if it's plugged back in?

You don’t plug it back in. You secure it by cable ties or something similar to the valve body..

Nope, I made sure to add enough tape around the connector fitting so it makes for a snug fit into the socket but it does not go all the way in. Its secured with over 2k kms. You could do the zip tie thing as well. IDK either way its secured and you feel most comfortable
