We have a broken cable on the power functions L motor. I've fixed an M-motor before in the engine, but this time the cut is near the connector.

Unlike the M-motor, this connector doesn't have the clips to open. How can this connector be opened to shrink the wire? The L-motor has a different connector than the M-motor, it looks like this:

Since there are no visible clips on the connector, it is probably not possible to open it without damaging it. Instead, you could purchase an 8886 or 8871 extension wire and use it to replace the entire cable (assuming you can open the motor).

    It doesn't look like solid plastic completely, since there is a line halfway. I will try your solution, after which we won't have a need for the connector anymore, so we can destroy it to see if someone in the future can benefit of the knowledge.
