Have  a Cocoon, Balco 3d printer, have managed to break the Thermistor. When i replace it with the new one do i have to thread it through the black sock wrap or can i attach it to the outside.

    Welcome.  You will appreciate that this is the UltiMaker forum so specific support for other printers is kind of hit or miss.  In addition I personally have never heard of a Balco before.  It looks like a basic cartesian printer though and I have done this job on my Ender.

    If you tape the ends of the two thermistor wires together and leave a smooth end you should have no problem feeding them through the loom.  You could also straighten a coat hanger, push it through the loom from the mainboard end, and then tape the thermistor wires to it and pull them through.

    Tie wrapping them to the outside will work, but is "Mickey Mouse Repair" really the what you want?  It isn't much more difficult to do it right.
