I appreciate this is not a post about model engineering but ...
The Bowden cable that links my car window to the "capstan" motor has corroded and snapped. Renault want around £200 for the motor + pulleys + wire assembly. My internet searching has found very little - either r/c model control cable then a jump in size to m/cycle and trailer brakes cable. I'm looking for a very flexible cable around 1.55mm (close to 1/16"?). Cycle brake cable is slightly thicker but is much stiffer.
What trades still use Bowden cable? I've seen it used to suspend shop display shelves and fishing traces. And really pushing my luck can solder nipples still be found (would araldite with choc block electrical connector be a suitable substitute)
Thanks and sorry for the O/T subject of the posting
