I was wiring up my Blackvue DR490 rear wire yesterday and during one of the final pulls it broke the rear plug. Is it possible to buy another TRRS connector and re-wire it back up? I bought another cable to re-run but I could save a ton of time if I'm able to rewire it.

This is my original cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/B07RQB11J3
Replacement plug I was looking at:

The original cable has a very small coaxial plug at both ends does it not? If so the replacement plugs that yo have linked to won't work and it will be very difficult to re-terminate the coax plug because it is so small.

The DR490's aren't coaxial ends.

Should work - we've had a few customers that have done this.

Yeah the original was 2.5mm, the ones I linked were 3.5mm. Seems like it would have been possible but I ended just buying a new cable for $18, sucking it up and re-running it.

Didn't realise that

But the cable that the OP linked to has the small coaxial MCX connectors, so that wouldn't work then. And it was that on which I was basing my previous reply (and my 550 and 750s having MCX connectors).

Sorry to have added confusion to the thread.
Anyway, seems like OP is sorted now (and will likely be a bit more circumspect when pulling cables in future :) )
