The inevitable has happened , after having it's first long run in 8 years.
I went to check the fluids. The bonnet cable hasn't snapped but has
stretched badly. Got the bonnet open again after breaking plastic grille.
(I have a spare one)
I've tried all the usual sources for a new cable but no joy.
I wondered if anyone might have a spare that they might sell?
It's for a coupe.
thanks Simon

Have you tried ?
They can make you one up from a pattern if need be.
It wont be "drop in" end of story though - same as the original Lancia item.
You would have to set the free length and tighten the nuts properly.

So long as the outer part of the cable is intact you can buy a length of the inner core and make your own - have fun adjusting this!

Or .... if yours is not frayed you could just shorten it to get the desired result.
lubricate the outer cable housing with grease and insert the cable - messy but worth the effort.
Failing that;
I have a complete spare from an HPE (same as a Coupe)
