Thank you.

You have a statutory 14 days cooling off period to cancel the car finance and should do so immediately.

However, the car purchase contract is a separate matter and no cooling off period applies to that, so you need to speak to the dealer and see whether they are willing to cancel the contract and refund the deposit.

You may lose the deposit if they agree to cancel the contract, of they may agree to refund the deposit and cancel the contract.
