If you have ever used one of these converters then you know they are delicate and if you or a passenger yanks it, its pretty much game over. I was faced with a recurring problem of these things breaking, getting slammed in doors and also not being long enough so I decided to make an instructable to save people that 20$ replacement fee.
Soldering Iron- rosin core audio solder for best results
Screwdriver- a really small one
Scissors, knife, wire strippers, or teeth... your choice
Hot glue gun- glue stick
New extra strong cord with jack.
Step 1: Cut and Disassemble
Step 2: Solder New Wire
Step 3: Strengthen and Reassemble
Also I will add a video of it working next time I'm in my car
