Squirrel damage

Can anyone give me guidance to what might be missing from these wires under the air intake 1998 boxster?

That is an open infinite loop. Sorry. Are you experiencing a particular problem? What year is your car? 97-99 is different from 00-04 in that area.

BTW, you can buy liquid electrical tape and coat the wire to protect it.

My guess is that they should go to the throttle position sensor. I can check the actual wires/colors for the connection if you need it. There may be some more damage up in there... The knock sensors are further under the intake and those wires seem to be a preferred food for rodents.

Thanks! There was just enough wire not chewed, on the throttle position sensor plug so I could tell which wire went where. Some new wire, soldier, heat shrink and electrical tape and we are good. It was throwing code 0410 and would die on deceleration.
Thank again.
