Help!!! clutch cable for 89. 1.8 mk2 scirocco

Help!!

So my clutch cable is starting to fail I'd say half the strands have snapped at the pedal end. (this cable was fitted by a local garage only a month ago). So I'm assuming poor routing and poor quality cable has lead to this happening. Anyway...

Does anyone know where I can find a replacement cable? All the garages seem to be closed due to corona virus and I'm worried it's going to snap soon. I'm happy to fit it myself just need the cable. It measures 1680mm.

I've had a look online but need it urgently and I'm worried with the virus a lot of online retailers are also closed

Not sure on length of cable?

Euro car parts are also delivering as are VW heritage.

Maybe here as well?
