159 - Bonnet Cable & Locking Unit

Just got back from Alfa dealer as cannot get into my bonnet and need oil & washer fluid desperately.
They have told me that I need a new cable and locking unit, which including Labour will cost approx. 280 (at least - more if they have to remove any of the body parts).
Friends have said I'm getting royally ripped off and that once you can get under the bonnet the rest should be simple.
Has anyone else had this? Can I just buy the parts and attempt myself or should I be going along with the dealers?

Try an Indie perhaps but don't you check your oil regularly anyway.....? My catch and handle went at different times but both replaced under warranty
