broken brake wire at wheel

What kind of connector can I use to repair broken wire. One of the wires to the brake is broken from original connector.

Solder and shrink tube it! Crimp connector is something just waiting to cause another problem and should be avoided on the brakes.

Neil beat me to it. Solder well and heat shrink.

Look for the shrink tubing with sealant it's a little thicker but it seals around the wire and keeps water out.
