Following the advice provided I installed the corrective wire pieces. While I do not question the accuracy of Gbarringer100 comments, the center section of the pieces do not take a bend and hold it as a typical solid wire would do. They spring back to the original straight form so all the bending that is required to get these wire sections in place occurs at the extreme ends where the wiring goes into the connectors. This created sharp bends and some stress on the wires at the connectors so I re-routed as best as I could to reduce the sharpness of those bends at the connectors. I used wire zip ties to secure.

Hope others find this helpful.
