I cracked that plastic ring on one of my SP hubs, but on the other side where the wiring was not involved, I could not see any wire at all. I shoved something in there that hardened up, I Shoe Goo that I shoved in there, but it might have been Seam Grip, both of which are liquids that will harden and solidify. You can hardly tell that I did anything to fill the hole.

Your repair could be trickier, as plugging and unplugging the wiring connection could put stress on your repair. And if you do not seal it up well, it gives water an opportunity to get into the armature of the hub.

Good luck with whatever you do.
