Radio wire at the rear hatch

929 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  deadend9009

I have a 2008 OBW, and have broken wires in the hatch opening. All the wires going to the passenger side were torn, 3 were broken. Fixed that. Going to the driver side, all of my radio wires were cut as well, including the antenna feed, which has a tiny wire in a transparent insulator and a bigger, woven metal wire over it. Those are both broken. Silly Subaru, must be the same person who thought a CV boot near the hot exhaust was a good idea.

My question is, how do I fix this wire within a wire? I can't figure it out. Any insight? I wanted to avoid paying $60 for a new set of wires if I could fix it myself.

The antenna cable is simply coax. may have per-foot lengths, but you'll need a way to join them or terminate and make your own, but they'll have all that, too, if you're feeling adventurous.
