    Its a royal PITA, and personally I would replace the cable in due course regardless, but as part of your link says:

    If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, then the wire must be replaced.

    * Can the substance drip onto contacts or terminals?
    * Is the substance flowing in such a way as to cause a short circuit?
    * Does the insulation show sign of embrittlement?







    BTW I've added your info to the Wiki.
