Window winder cable gone... bah...


My window winder cable in the rear window broke, leaving the window falling down on itself.
I went to a garage, and they charged me 80 euro, just to make the window stay put.

Now that that is done, and it wont rain into my car, what is the best way of fixing it properly ?

The Alfa garage quoted me 150 euro for the part (I have to buy the entire assembly apparently)

Can I take the door apart myself ? Can i get away with just buying the cable somewhere ?
I assume its the same cable that is Fiats too... ?
