Are you saying the wiring actually pulled out of the motor itself, or just a molex connector pulled apart?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The wires pulled out of one side of the harness (Connector). The wires connected to the motor are still in place.
Expert:  Tim H. replied 2 years ago.
Where is this connector exactly? I'm trying to get a visual of which one you are talking about?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It was inside the motor housing. The first one connected to the wires that are directly connected to the motor parts inside.
