Getting rear seat out.

I have an 06 and both cables on the latch are busted. How can I get the seat out?

Thanks.

Fold the seat forward and then on the 2 shafts that attach it to the front mounts there is a small clip on the inside of each shaft that the seat is attached to. Pull clips and push the seat to one side and the other will pop out then slide other side out. All hardware can stay intact.

1.) Open tailgate
2.) Wrap recovery strap around rear seat
3.) Shackle recovery strap to tree
4.) Gas it!

Most importantly, video tape it

If it's like my rear seat, which has been stuck for a couple of years now, you can't fold it forward to get that far. I've never been able to figure it out and haven't felt like paying the dealer however many hundreds of dollars they'd want to look at it.

Correct, if the latch is not working, you can't fold it.

To the OP, how do you know the cable are broken?

If you have not, you should be able to undo the fabric on the back of the seat to see the cables. At the bottom of the seat back the fabric is held on by a plastic strip interlocked tigh the fabric from the front of the seat back. Pry it open with a screwdriver

LOL.

I know the cables are broken, you can pull them both out from the top. The ends are frayed.

On my 2000 Sahara, looking into the Jeep from the tailgate, there is a manual lever on the bottom left.

Pull lever (which can be a B****, so if you haven't ever pulled the lever, might grab a glove from your recover kit), push seat back toward the front. This is 1/2 the battle, the other half is as mudmagnet63 said - clips, slide left/right, remove.

If you haven't got your seat out, I can send you some pics of mine that I had the same problem on. It took a while to figure it out, but I got it.
