Re: J1772 Melted - How much will this cost to fix?

I would try an auto wreck yard.
When using public charge points I always check for dis-coloration and arcs or pits (usually found closer to the edge of the pins) .
I also check the temperature with my hand after few minutes .
If I see a defect , I will move to a different unit and report it to network or owners.

Updates:

:D Tony Williams at Quick Charge Power - Was able to provide a solution that was around $125 + 30 min labor. Looks like something just about anyone can do if you aren't afraid to mess around with splicing wires. He got back to me quickly and even took apart his own car and took photos to show how easy it would be.

:evil: Stadium Nissan - 2 Days with no call backs. I actually went in yesterday and confirmed they were quoting the wrong part. Never got a call back from the service manager despite the visit and 4 phone messages left over 2 days.

:) Buena Park Nissan - Was there for around 40 min. They confirmed I had the right part number and it would be repaired under warranty. The parts ordering system was down so I'm waiting on a call back as to when they'll be able to get the part, but I've got my car back and will just charge using CHAdeMO ($$$$) until it gets fixed. Luckily there's a number of CHAdeMO stations around, with 1 along my route home. They just called back and I've got an appt on the 20th to get it fixed, as it will take a week to get the part special ordered.

Port has been replaced under warranty and is currently charging using a public Chargepoint L2 charger as I type this.

The service rep I talked to was a bit upset because apparently Nissan only pays for 3/4 of an hour labor for the job and it actually requires several hours of work.

Why the dealer would complain to you about their relationship with the manufacturer, I'm not sure.

Because it was delaying them getting me a receipt for the work.

Are the mechanics being unfairly treated, or are they not doing their jobs efficiently enough? Is Tony a super-mechanic? *shrugs*

My opinion of dealerships has fallen to a new low.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Several hours does seem ridiculous, however Tony's repair sounds like it's all done at the receptacle, and the dealer repair involves replacing the entire harness. It may require removing more components.
