Wire from the body to the hatch is cut

Postby ms2000 » June 1st, 2015, 11:13 pm

Any of you had to deal with it?
I fixed it before - it lasted a few yrs - it prob needs a wire attachment.

What gauge wire is it?
How many watts the soldering iron needs to be to solder it?

Any ready made parts to connect it?

Soldering works best. No one at Acura thought these cars would last so long or be of prized value. Do what you have to to keep it on the road in fine shape.

Add a little extra length to the wire by slicing in a new piece(s) to allow a bit more movement and it should be less likely to go again.
