Brake component cable fix

So i recently purchased a 2017 10SD trailer tent.

After getting it home, i noticed one of the 2 wheels was prety hot. Iv'e troubleshooted it to the fact that the other wheel has a conection to the brakes that seems to be cut.

Im trying to figure a way to fix it. The conection thing seems too wide to just splice and force the cable back in, any advice on the part needed or an easy fix ?

All those are is quick connectors to make it faster to assemble at the factory. There is nothing special about them.

Get some wire shrink wrap tubing. Snip the end of the other wire one that's still in the connector. Strip the coating off each of the wires, slide the shrink wrap onto one wire. Twist the exposed ends together then solder it. Slide the shrink tube over the joint and use a heat gun to shrink the rubber to the wire.

You could also use wire nuts and wrap electrical tape around it but it may come apart on its own.
