Help Help needed- Spider Hood

I'm hoping the wealth of knowledge and expertise on this most excellent forum can do what Alfa main agents are unable to manage.

I have tried ordering two hood cover release cables from them. They run from the centrally mounted motor in the cubby box behind the seats to each corner of the metal hood cover. When the motor turns it pulls these two cables to unlock / lock the hood cover.

The parts are shown in the Alfa GTV/Spider service manual, as is the procedure for replacing and adjusting them, however Alfa main agents do not think they exist. Has anybody bought these, or have a part number for them?

At present an electrical crimp and a shoelace is doing the trick

Many thanks for any help,
