Need instructions to repair boot hatch cable/loom 2012 fiat

the wiring in the hatchback is broken where the boot loom connects the hatchback to the car. I want to repair myself. Any instruction would be super awesome. Specific wire size, connectors etc.

Thank you

There is a kit you can buy from Germany that others have used. I'm sure someone will be able to give you more details.

I've done it, took me 3 hours, you need to be competent at soldering, get silicone cover wire like on "test meter leads" solder on the new wire and pull it through the flexible next cut out the excess old wire now solder each end with heat shrink there's about 15 wires, you can use the same colour wire for all if done methodically note 6 all black cables, some may snap whilst pulling through so use a "wire coat hanger" to push through

This is the kit.
Yes, I know you can make your own up, but I reckon this is easier for the non technical folk even though it's a bit expensive.

You just need a crimping tool.

Good luck,
Mick.
