Hello everyone.
I have a genuine HEX-CAN interface purchased from local authorized reseller many years ago (like 7-8 yrs ago or so).
However, unfortunately due to its age, the cable is now failed and barely works. It seems that the wires are broken somewhere inside, near the USB connector which goes to the PC. You need to wiggle it long and boring to get to a position where the interface gets detected. Now once you start working on a car and accidently wiggle the cable, the connection is lost again :(

Question: is it possible to replace the cable? Will a simple USB cable from electronics shop work or is it some kind of special cable? Are any special tools or soldering required in order to replace it?

Thank you
