I have a busted wiring harness from the driver's door

Hi I'm Kevin yes you can repair wires. I would recommend soldering rather than crimp connectors . Much cheaper than replacement door loom

Two of the wires came out of the black connector. Do you have a pin diagram showing which color wire goes into which spot? Connector is numbered 0-1452891-1 PBT-GF20.

I personally don't il opt out another tech may have this

Thanks. I didn't get the internal liner off the door to get the harness number because I didn't want to have to re-seal and waterproof the panel. I suppose I could use trial and error since it is only the two wires.

You could you have two chances normally a straight forward repair from there
