    fixing melted V.C. on alpine type r

    so yeah... just as the title says.... the positive terminal on the far right side of the 4 plug ins just melted all the way through and i cant send it back even though its under warranty because car toys said "i abused it"... which in all honesty is completly true... but how do i fix it? maybe cut it open and sauder new metal all the way through??

    Re: fixing melted V.C. on alpine type r

    That's not the coil, that's the terminal. That is IMO most likely manufacturer defect since the actual coil should burn first if it were an over-powering issue. Anyway, you may be able to gob some solder on there and fill that gap, if that doesn't work you can toss it, or try your luck with a type R recone kit available on eBay.
