Good luck.
Parts if needed shouldn't be much.
Labour 40 - 50 quid an hour at independants.

Just musing but I wander how they greased the cables. There aren't many you can and even if you can open em up, with modern inner cables sheathed in plastic, no real need.
Usually it's that inner sheath that causes issues when/if it breaks up.
Squirt of WD to loosen dirt and maybe a light oil is all that should be needed else cables are FUBAR

Check parts prices at sites like Europarts...just put your Reg number in.
Independant garages should be charging around that price as they make their profit on difference between trade and retail prices, Buying at trade and marking up on retail is a little naughty.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
