Hi everyone,

 

 

The ABS wire on my front right wheel has broken just above where it goes into the connector.

Even with the small black plastic bit removed there still isn't much wire to get to.

 

I'm not sure on the best way to fix this - there's very little wire left so I'm not sure I would be able to solder on a new piece with enough strength to stop it breaking again. However, I can't figure out how to release the wire from the connector (and how would I fit a new piece of wire in....)

 

Does anyone have any ideas? I'm happy to buy a new connector if needed but couldn't find where to purchase the correct one.

you can remove the pin with a small screwdriver or pin extractor, then you can add a new section of wire and then join it to the existing loom

 

Be aware that wire corrosion might extend up the existing loom some distance.
