    Default Handbrake spring :-(

    Evening everyone just a quick moan driving the car yesterday and i could smell burning and found it was coming from the o/s/r wheel.So a lad at work had a look and it was the spring from the handbrake cable to the caliper had snapped so of i pop to the dealers only to be told you had to buy the caliper to get the spring . My question is does anyone know where i can get one from ? i dont mind spending any amount of money to fix my car but i cant bring myself to pay that much for a spring . Any advice appreciated thank you .

    Any small odds and sods that are difficult to come by or are overly expensive, (at the risk of repeating myself) my first call is the local scrappy
