DaJokr As long as the solder connection is good, thats basically a shop repair right there.

beardedlbzguy I just sent you a response to your PM and then seen this post.

Your problem was similar to mine where the ring broke off, but you fixed yours the same way as I did mine. Like I said, I haven't had any problems since I fixed it like that.

407driver One stranded wire, it is energized by the GPCM and grounded thru the GP to the head.

What you did will work like a champ! Good Job!

When putting it back on use your index finger on the other hand to prevent the terminal from rotating and repeating the issue.

I know you already figured that out, but others who read this may not have. So I thought a little instruction may save some other poor soul from having this happen to them too.

Solo Ascent Should I cut the wire and splice on a new extension? I just wrapped an end over the copper crimp that was left and soldered the new crimp onto the remaining copper crimp. Should I cut the wire and splice? I just don’t know if there are two wires or if it is just one hot wire.

Here's the new end

Can I fix it like this?

Broke off glow plug connector

I only found one similar post and no resolution. I broke off the end of the glow plug connector. I can't tell if the glow plug wires are two wires or one. It is too hard to see close, but I just soldered on a new end. Anyone dealt with this that knows how to fix them? I think my solution will work but I don't want to try it until I have someone with knowledge to help out. Thanks. It's a 04 lly. I'll add pictures.
