Power resistor

It's easiest to install the power resistor before you mount the thermistor.

Strip about 4cm of the thick heater wires.

Twist each one together with the legs of the power resistor.

Trim the excess wire so no wires stick out.

This is how it should look once you're done.

Remove the plastic side of the larger crimp sleeves. Use pliers or side cutters to grip the plastic while pulling the metal at an angle.

The plastic should come off cleanly.
