Yes just wrap a little insulation tape around it.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

I've had the black box issue when (presuming original crimps) the connection doesnt sit dead square and in the right place

But yea, insulation tape is a solid fix!
