no need to solder anything.
Unless you have a mini Crimping machine, you can never get the pins to be as tight as factory. I always use a tiny bit of solder after crimping.
When I say tiny, I mean miniscule. Just enough to prevent the wire from moving.
If you put too much on, the pins won't fit in the Plug.
