How to reattach ABS wires into connector

Hi all, a few months back my ABS light came on and I noticed the front wheel ABS sensor cables had detached from the connector as shown:

The connector as you can see in the picture has a clip mechanism which you press in to detach it from the plug that it connects to, and I thought perhaps that also holds the wires in place, although it does not. Any advice would be much appreciated.

The pins that the wires were attached too are still in the socket probably. You will need to remove them. They are held in by a small tab that lock the pins in place. A pick can be used to relieve the tabs holding the pins in so you can get them out. You will then need to acquire the same type of pins that were detached from the wires. Once you have them you will need to prep the wires where the pins broke away from so you can cleanly install the new pins. The pins are crimped on. Then insert them back into the socket and you should be good to reattach it to the bike.

This is a simple task but can seem a bit daunting. Its really not. Make sure that the wires that remain from the broken pins are long enough to be repinned and routed to the ABS senor. You dont want the wires to be tought.

If you dont have any experience working with wires like this maybe a friend of yours can help you or maybe you are near a member on here who can. For a piece of mind, a dealership service department can take care of this for you.
