  Now Sold :-(
after you have taken the non gen ones back three times as they don't fit you will be happy to pay the extra.

^GSF don't do cables for the RS cars, neither do any other parts suppliers

fit genuine (modiffied parts now that don't fail) and only about £30 each

I was quoted £35 + VAT for each side by my local Renault dealer on Saturday. Not in stock but can be within 48 hours. There's a Renault parts store on the bay that advertises replacement handbrake cables for the 172/182 at £16 each but after seeing a couple of comments about fitment issues, I might just bite the bullet and fork out the 80 quid for the genuine ones, ouch!

I tried 3 or 4 non-genuine cables of which none would fit before conceding and buying a genuine pair from west renault also, mine however were £69.40 for the pair delivered back in November so you got a great price there!

I bought mine from Wests Renault (great service) after the ones from the local motorfactors didn't fit.

I tried the local place first as mine snapped the night before the car was booked in for it's M.O.T. test.

Renault has now agreed to give me a discount so I can get both sides now for £60 inc VAT, so that's a bit easier to swallow and I know they'll fit OK.
