Exclamation Accelerator Cable Broken SIX Times

Hi all,

I had an accelerator cable in my renault clio 2000 for 4 years and never had any problems. Anyway, about 6 months ago it snapped and I have new ones fitted. It is no exaggeration, I have gone through 6 cables now as they always end up sticking and wearing VERY quickly. I've gone to 3 different garages who have "fixed" it for me. I've had my new cable on for a week, I watched them fit it and it was brand new out of the bag. However, it is now sticking again and I reckon at a guess I've got a week before it snaps. My question is, can I pay renault to fit an "official" renault cable or are all cables the long bit of metal with a plastic clip? I want the job doing properly as my old accelerator was fab - foot to the floor, no vibrations, no stratching, no struggles going up hill etc. The last 6 have been nightmares. Thank you.
