Angry 08 grand scenic electronic handbrake replacement price

Hi all
This is my first post so please go easy on me
I have a 08 grand scenic that was just recently put in for a service and MOT with my local garage, i received a call telling me the electronic hand brake had seized, rather than replace the part i was informed the whole lot has to be replaced at a price of £823 excluding fitting and activation by a renault garage
I phoned the renault garage to have the price confirmed and also told that it is only the later grand scenic 2`s that have it, i have to admit i feel like i have just been mugged and really dont have over a grand to spend on a car worth probably only 3 1/2 grand - 4 grand at most.

Is there anyway to get around having to pay out so much cash and how can renault justify extorting that kind of money for a part for a car that was bought as a good budget priced family runaround ......

I now have no car (MOT expires today) 3 kids to take to school 2 1/2 miles from home and 2 large dogs to ferry to the local coast for their daily walk
