    It's not so bad, just join each side to a plug connector, replug and carry on.

    @M1sf3t like i'd give up the chance of some free magnesium. Absolutely.

    @Parzi if it were anyone else's that'd have been what I them to do. Or better yet I would've told them to get someone else 3 weeks ago when I realized where the coolant sensor was.

    Unfortunately its my grandfathers so i felt obligated to prevent him from loosing his ass to the dealership. I get it all put back together it will be my 4th time since swapping the sensor out, this time with new head gaskets and timing chains all because ford decided to get fancy with the sparkplug on these 🙄

    @Parzi yea, you already know then. I didn't even break them as i unscrewed them, the ceramic came unstuck from the threaded portion and the metal part just eased its way on up the shaft til I ran out of thread. It wasn't til i tried to wiggle it the rest of the way out wit pliers that it finally shattered.

    Time to buy wireless headphones 🎧

    @hardfault depends. Wireless will come with a slight delay.

    A little solder will fix that cord tho, no problem. Cut about 3" off each wire to offset the two splices and cover the whole thing with a long piece of heat shrink and it won't even be noticeable.

    @M1sf3t i love people who can do that.

    Me trying DIY repairs ends in pain and blood. I've got two left hands and a talent to choose the wrong time for having a serious brainfart.

    XD

    @M1sf3t that is based on assumption that OP has soldering iron.
    Also problem here is wire broke, what you are suggesting is a work around, i am giving a complete fix

    @IntrusionCM it just takes patience an a little trial and error.

    @hardfault yea but thats like 10 bucks vs 50+. If you don't wanna take the time to solder it get the quick connects like @SortOfTested was talking about, they're cheap too.

    Any case, my point was wireless isn't always an option. They're fine if your only listening to music but if your trying to record something or your hardcore into gaming then there is enough of delay to matter.

    @M1sf3t does that run Typescript?

    @alexbrooklyn what the ford? might as well, they're the m$ equivalent of the auto world.

    @hardfault i buy these as they're actually good without being $250 and specifically for the wire. Bluetooth stuff is a shit experience when not on mobile. Also I do have an iron but my hands shake too much to be good with it.

    @M1sf3t my issue isn't even about delay, it's that it's a fucking nightmare to get anything Bluetooth working on Win10 or Linux because my only adapter is from like 2007 and it's also one of the chipsets Linux still doesn't like.

    @alexbrooklyn Fords require going through all the bullshit to fix. We had to cut bolts off the exhaust assembly just to drop it, but we had to do it BLIND while REACHING AROUND OTHER SHIT.

    Man when I was a kid and this happened, I just scrapped some tin from old pcbs, peeled the wires with my teeth and soldered it with a nail heated from a stove

    @uyouthe teeny tiny wires that can't be peeled but are waxed?

    @Parzi no, not those lacquered wires. It was a Genius headset with proper wires, two channels in plastic and ground without
