I was making a PCB utilizing the Mini Fit Jr. footprints and I noticed that the Y spacing is different to Molex’s drawings.
Looking at the documents for a 2x4 pin connector, the Y spacing is written as 4.2mm:
( I can’t post more than one image , source for Y spacing can be found below, around about E9 )

Whereas the actual connectors are 5.5mm:
( Source: Molex_MiniFit-JR-5556-08A_2x04x4.20mm_Straight )
Unfortunately that seems to be the case for all of the connectors, including the right angle connectors.
What should I do? I have a couple of options.
- Fix them all myself
- Not advisable because I am a n00b
- Tell the proper authorities
- I’m not sure who to notify or where!
