I soldered mine last week. PITA. I think the wires are made of
nichrome, they are stiffer and more difficult to work with than
copper. If butt splices provide an equivalent electrical connection, I
would do this rather than solder. I would also use high quality splices
with the integral heat shrink sealant (marine type). Use the smallest
that will fit. Then I would stagger the splices so they are not all
lumped together. This will allow the rubber conduit sleeve from the
OEM sensor to slide over the splice.
