    Can it not be fixed without replacing it? Maybe shrink tube it?

    Have you tried Google for parts?
    If you just be sure the exposed conductor is not able to short to anything you'll be fine and will buy time till you find a replacement IF you choose to.

    I don't think they sell the wire separate. I have not seen it anywhere at least. You could cut that part out that is pinched and re soder it together if it is that bad

    If everything is working okay and there are no broken wires I would leave it alone. The wires themselves are not broken from the sounds of your description. You could coat the bare wires with nail polish.

    To go messing around with wiring that is not damaged can cause more faults.
