You WILL have to cut or disconnect the wires if you use heatshrink.
Don't do it unless they all are already broken (not just bare).

Get some "wiring loom" at your auto parts store.  There are various
diameters of split loom available, choose one generously big enough
for the bundle of wires.  Tape each wire so it is insulated and
enclose the whole bundle in the loom.  this will protect from the
sharp edges of the openings in the door and jamb.
