Hi ronnyb, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community! I'm sorry, those cables are not sold separately. They are captive to the adapter and it is considered to be one single part. I'm curious as to why you need this?

Ah OK. You might save some time by surfing the holiday sales and finding a replacement for the whole thing.

I think any repair is unlikely to be safe for long-term use.  Having said that, I have repaired then.  I cut the entire cord (both wires) in the area that was damaged .  I stripped about 2 inches of outer insulation from each side. and about 1/2" of inner insulation from each of the 4 wires, I slid a 3" piece of 1/4" heat-shrink tubing over the longer pair of wires. I slid a 1 1/2" piece of 1/8" heat shrink tubing over one side of each pair of wires.  I then twisted each of the matching pairs together.  I  soldered each pair and folded the soldered joint over so that it was next to its insulation.  I slid the 1/8" tubing over the joints and heated them to shrink the tubing. Finally, I slid the 1./4" tubing over the entire area and heated that.
