Hello Justin

I'd suggest employing the services of a auto electrician to carefully remove the damaged portions of the loom and splice in new wire

this woudl take him about a days work so ostensibly will cost you about 400 euro

otherwise contact the specialist merc breakers to find a replacement loom

the problem is common but not on every car
