Ive no doubt its many thousands rather than many hiundreds

- I did mine, it took all of 10 minutes to diagnose / find / repair
- there are two video's around, 1st where you just unclip, and 2nd where you strip the entire harness
- go for the quick clip one, they each pop open in parts of a second, 10 seconds 10 clips, plenty of room
- which 10 clips out of the hundreds ? its always the point at which the cable bends and stays bent
- when I did mine I deliberately did not do it the correct belt~n~braces way with solder and heat shrink sleeve
- I simply twisted the wires together [incorrect] and used top quality woven self-amalgamating tape to joint
- that way flexibility at the point of the bend that would disappear with solder & sleeve .. .. was maintained
