bonnet cable problems

I have a broken release catch on my 2001 1.9dci laguna. I bought a new cable for a reasonable 15 or thereabouts. When I asked Renault dealers about changing it they told me to take it to a bodyworks shop cos its too difficult for their "technicians". Has anyone had to change a cable and if so could we please have a "how to" article written. In the mean time I have created some tight loops on the end of the cable in the fusebox area and use needle nosed pliers to open the bonnet. Seems better than paying Renault lots for them to change.
Oh btw I am waiting on a new keycard, current one will not lock the car as the contact is broken inside, How can they get away with such a rip off for a new "key"
