Probably best practised with on some scrap: it would give a much better repair.
Get yourself some solder with lead in it though: is much easier to work with, even if it is illegal.
clean ends of wire by scraping with a sharp blade ,twist together, melt small blob of fluxed wire solder onto (cleaned) tip of iron, apply solder to wires, heat until it flows
or clean wire end and terminal on plug then solder as above ,slightly trickier as you need to get the wire and terminal to touch withone hand or a closes peg (or similar) and use the soldering iron with the other
tis pretty easy really youtube probably has plenty of instructional videos
||Twist the wires together and use superglue. For this it'll work grand.|
||aye but is superglue safer than solder|
Probably not, I'm still recovering from the Easter bonnet glue-gun burns.
Thank you all. I will have a go.
||Best joining solution around are things called wago connectors. They are push fit, quick and permanent. Used by electricians everywhere. The lever type are suitable for finer/stranded cables. You can put them inside small (wago) boxes for a neater finish.|
||So how did you get on WW?|
||The superglue didn't work. I've yet to try anything else, as we're on holiday. Also, the clutch on the car smells awful, and needs sorting if we're to get home.|
||Boo and double boo then|
