05 AS Int'l Electric Brakes

The two little white wires that connect to my electric brake drum have broken off, right at the base of where they connect to the wheel. My question is, if I pop off the little rubber grommet, is there enough play in the wire that I can pull some through and splice it back together?

Thanks - that image looks like you took the tire off and opened up the brake drum housing from the outside. It appears as if there's little, if any, extra wire to pull through the back side and reconnect. Which means the only way to fix the issue would be to go through that process (which entails removing the bearing, spindle, etc.).

I was just hoping there was an easier way than disassembling the entire thing.

If brake components are in good shape I bet you could just replace the magnet. Then look at magnet $$ vs complete assy $$.

If there is an inch or more, use a crimp butt connector to make the repair.

Get the butt connector that shrinks when heat is applied to it (heat gun or small lighter). The kind that shrink will help keep out the dirt & water that can corrode the connection.

Whatever crimp solution, best solder it first then crimp over with a butt or like type and properly seal.

Donít want to think being years down the road wondering about a potentially oxidizing crimp only connection inside of a rusting wheel assembly.

On an 05, depending on service history, I bet replacing the brakes and inspecting and servicing the bearings would be a good move. Or have a shop pull that one and fix it.
