I am looking for the clamp and the adaptor of the tailgate cable.

Any idea where to find the oem parts?

On the bay I found these clamp types : which one would eventually be the right one?

Thank you for the help.

I found out that the latch is from a Ford Mondeo MKII from 98.

The setup for the actuator cable used by Lotus is, to say the least, a little bit rudimental...

The original cable from Ford looks like this:

I will use the part indicated and put it on the cable installed in my car to fix it properly on the mechanism:

Note:; By the way, on my car the cable installed is for a RHD car, and therefore at least 40 cm to long...
