I'm trying to fold down my rear seat and it seem that one of the cables are slack. The latch on the passenger side releases but the other side won't move. I can pull the cable out from the housing, so obviously it's not connected at the latch end. How can I get the seat to fold down to get at the problem end?

Your link to the pic didnt work, so I didnt get to see exactly what you are dealing with. Usually when a seat back wont fold down, you need to remove the entire seat to flip it over and see what you are dealing with

I can see part of the latch mechanism on the side end of the seat on each side. Is there a parts diagram or a picture of the latch you can send me, so I can get a feel for what I'm up against. If I unbolt the seat, it's still going to be held in place by the two latches.

Mitchell doesnt have any specific instructions for releasing the latch. See if you can locate thepiece where the cable hooks to it, is the cable broken or is the arm it hooks to broken. You should be able to acess the arm to pull it so it will release

Here's the info I was hoping for when I posted my question. On each side of the hinge end of the seat there is a plastic molding cover. Remove one bolt and twist the plastic molding out of the way. You will now see the lock mechanism and have access to the latch. Lift the release latch, and slip a wire around the latch, to act as a secondary release handle. The seat will fold forward as normal to allow access for replacing the cable & housing.
