Blinker Question

One of my 2 kids broke my left front blinker - from the pics, is it salvageable with super glue/tape until I can order a replacement? Are these hard to install with wire splicing, or something simpler like a plug and play? I was thinking about replacing all 4 soon, so now may be a good time if it's not mechanically challenging. Any replies are appreciated!

Glue isn't going to touch that. Making a splint with a couple rods (nails, wooden dowls, etc) and some heavy duty tape should hold for a good while though.
The wires have bullet connectors, so they're easy to swap out.

I broke one recently and I made a temp fix with a metal pin and gorilla tape. But that really only kept it from flapping until my replacements came. The housing just has to be twisted vertically and it’ll come out. The wires should have bullet connectors so you shouldn’t have to splice anything

I got my replacements from Partzilla.com, not the cheapest option out there but they’re OEM and that’s what I was looking for. The bullet connectors should be on the wiring that’s on the bike, the signal should have the male end and the bike wiring is the female end.

Isn't there a thread here where a ball point pen is used to 'splint' the housing?

Front signal needs three wires.

We posted at the same time, so I'll put this here also - Isn't there a thread here where a ball point pen is used to 'splint' the housing?

There’s 2 part numbers one for front and one for the rear. But yes that is the one I just replaced.
