    An easy direct replacement is obtain an MK K011.

    You need to replace that whitecable, it's rubber & is breaking down as can be seen by the breaks in it!

    Thanks for your reply.

    Could you please let me know what sort of cable should I replace this with. I probably need about 1m.

    If you could send me a link it would be fabs!

    THanks,

    you will need to remove the screws from the new one (leaver the washers off) and make use of the origional screws. (different size)
