    Default soldering abs wires.

    right think my problem has been tracked down. started unplugging all connectors on the os/f abs wire. and started to strip back the plastic covering the wire that runs up behind the wheel arch and low and behold i find a broken wire!!! start jumping round like a complete fool with excitement. how does this need to be repaired? i have a soldering iron and all that do i just cut out the little bit near the plug where its broken or cut out a decent size peice and replace it? as i believe it works on resistance so doing a proper soldered joint will be rather important. do i just twist and solder them or is there a better way. dont want to muck this up! many thanks!
