W203 door handle cable

I was taking a look at the near side front door of my friend's W203 last night as the door wouldn't hold shut or lock. I was suspecting It to be a broken spring in the lock catch actuator but it turned out after lots of spray lube it was just jammed. It now shuts and locks ok and the exterior handle works fine. The interior handle also works but is a bit floppy and doesn't spring back properly. I noticed the cable that hooks onto the rear of the interior handle is frayed hence it is not running smoothly. Is the release cable available separately or does it only come with a new actuator as one bit?
