Presuming you're describing replacing the female connector to the maf sensor, there might be difficulty in just finding a connector and wires since most wiring are harnesses made as one piece with branches off the main connection, the engine computer. Best chances of finding a connector with short lengths of wiring may be from cannibalized wrecks or visiting a junk yard. Ebay and craiglist may be another source of whole or cannibalized connectors. And there's a possibility of the connector being used elsewhere on your car, suggesting more use of the same connector.

This parts site might get you started (fuel & exhaust button).

US engine is z18xer but is slightly different from that of Europe.

You might find a similar engine in the Chevy Cruze but you need to see if components are similar.

Or you could call a junk yard and patch the cable in.

You can try to search on junk yards or salvage auctions

I went looking for a solution to your problem and found something on youtube that directed me to a url - findpigtails.com. So I went to that site and it appears they have what you need (female connector) although it is a tad expensive. They do give 20% off your first order, so look for that. You might view their video on how to repair pigtails in case you have the skill to do so.

P.S. I had to use the chat option on the homepage because the search failed to list Saturns. The representative was able to show me a 4 wire female connector
by giving him the vehicle information I had.

Last thought - contact an Auto Electric shop to see if they can make one for you.
