With the MRTs I just pulled out some more wire... It's in there, you just have to find it and pull it out some...

We spliced in extra wire to compensate for the longer distance on my car. I haven't had any problems with it at all. I would rather have them be soddered instead of butt-spliced, so that might happen next time I jack the car up and work on it.

Be careful though, to connect the correct wires when reconnecting them. Mine had 3 different wires; 2 white and 1 black. We tied small zip ties around 1 of the white wires so we were sure we were connecting the proper ones.

Just be sure to get like 9 extra feet of wire somewhere (should be plenty to reroute things where you want them). Maybe get more, as I'm not sure just how much we used originally.
