Cut out all the damaged wires with wire cutters. Spread out the cuts across a bundle of several wires: if many joins are opposite each other their bulk may make it difficult to fit the loom into the car. If possible, replace wiring with new wire of the same colour. The new wire must be the right size: there are five sizes, depending on current rating. Repairs in wrapped sections of the loom are the only places where you may join wires by twisting them together and soldering the joint mainly because there may not be room for any other method.
Cable sizes are given by two numbers. The first one is the number of strands. The second (which is always the same in car wiring) is the diameter of each strand in millimetres. Twisting wires together and fitting spade terminals twist bare ends together and solder them.Cover the joint with insulating tape. Tag connectors are closedround the bare wire withpliers, then soldered. A spade terminal is easy to disconnect andreconnect. Methods of joining, wires To connect two wires, use a wire stripper to remove about in. (19 mm) of insulation from each wire.
