Best method that I've used to fix fraying of cable wires like this is to try and twist it back in the direction of the wire as tight as possible, clamp it down w/small vise grips, then use thinnest tape you have that will hold it together. At this point, for a permanent fix, use a 2 part epoxy resin to keep the frayed end together. When the epoxy has hardened, trim off the wide pieces a little as possible. Don't use a lot of epoxy or the wire will be too big to fit through the hole. Best of luck, I would imagine re-cabling to be a bit more work.

Getting rid of a car just because of a frayed cable?

Is this forum becoming one for spendthrifts?

Someone needs to stimulate resuscitate this economy.
