Q: Broke my alternator wire

Broke my alternator wire whiling replacing the other
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need a heavy duty set of crimping pliers, a butt connector or terminal, and possibly a short section of wire. I would assume the wire is about 4 gauge in thickness. Take the broken piece to an automotive parts store or a technician and they can tell you exactly what you need.
