    Wanted: E61 hatch wiring repair near Westchester, NY

    Hi, looking for someone near the Westchester, NY area that has replaced/repaired the wiring in an E61 to do the job on my 2008 wagon. My hatch handle control wire is cut and I suspect that my rear defroster line has also gone bad. Wouldn't be shocked if some other wires are already frayed too. Called a few local shops but none were familiar with the process and I would rather someone that has explicitly done this repair already to tackle the job.

    Please shoot me a message if interested in the job, thanks.

    the hardest part about the whole thing is pulling the harness out from the lid then solder new wire in. A good independent shop who has repaired trunk harness's will know what to do

    Thanks - I ordered some 14 and 22 awg wire along with heat shrink butt connectors so I'll give it a try myself I guess. Think butt connectors are good enough or should I learn how to doa quick solder?
