My Battery cable came away from the solenoid a few months a go, i did a quick fix on the cable and managed to get it sorted up until now. The cable is now to short to reach the solenoid so i will have to buy a new one. Can anyone advse if i can just buy a generic one from halfords rather than buy an MG Zr part?
If so which cable is it?
Sorry im no mechanic but any help will be of great assistance. Dont want to pay a garage 40 labour plus part for fixing somethign i can do myself.

if its just the cable straight from battery to solenoid, then there is no reason you carnt get one from halfrauds, or just go scrap yard and get a right size one from another car
