The cable that goes from my interior door handle to the latch mechanism has broken, and I ordered what I thought was the correct cable off of Amazon it turns out it was for a Spectra not a Rio and to my dismay after taking the whole door apart found that the cable I bought doesn't fit. I cannot find a door latch cable for a 2006 Rio on any parts websites or ebay, so I'm wondering if anyone here knows where I might find one, or knows if theres a cable from another car that will fit.

Thanks!

I tried filing down the ends of the cable I got off Amazon but the ends snapped when I tried to install the cable :l I took the cable from the lock actuator and installed it on the handle so I can at least open my door from the inside. Going to have to dig around a salvage yard and find another cable for the lock I guess. Real pain in the arse that nobody sells these cables anymore.
