Corroded wire connector in door


Some of my wires in my door are corroded and two of the wires are broken off. one is for my locks, the two wires are pulled out of the plug from the door. does anyone know what a fix for this is. like can you buy any new metal clips or plugs to put the wire back into the plastic housing, or could i use some metal set and hold it in that way. i need some suggestions cuz having to open both my door and the passenger door separately gets old pretty quick. thanks

is the wire for the locks a red one? if so have a look and you will notice that it only go's into the door just to come back out again in a loop find where the loop joins in the footwell of the car behind the speaker connect the to red wires and it wil work fine again its a common problem and an easy fix
