Scenic MK2 Rear brake cable springs

Hi all,
Last night offside rear wheel was producing that burning brake smell. On inspection and after taking caliper and pads off to grease and clean them, I noticed that the spring thats on the end of the handbrake cable is missing. This obviously pulls the pads off the disc when the handbrake is released and becauuse its missing the brakes are binding and causing that burning smell.
My question is where do I get the spring. Phoned Renault who quoted £500+ cos its part of the handbrake computer kit!!!
Not paying that for a spring that probably cost £1 max!!
Anyone know where I could get one new.
Thanks Stevie.
