Hi LT,

My driver's side front wheel has a severed ABS cable. Unfortunately, the cut is really close to the connector, and there is no slack on rest of the cable. I think it will need a new connector with a couple inches of new cable. Any suggestions on how best to fix, and what the applicable part numbers might be?

Thank you for the help!

You should be able to join without extra wire using a couple of these shrink-adhesive-low-temp-solder-included butt connectors. I thought they were toys until I tried a few. You just needed a heat gun although I've seen videos of folks using a lighter.

If you get desperate for the connector, it is very common on these cars. I have a bunch of them. The only difference is you would have to shave down 2 notches, one on each side. PM me if you want more help.
