Passenger seat release loop broken

I've got an 02 TJ. The cloth loop on the passenger seat that you pull to lean the seat forward broke off. I can see in the little hole that there's a steel cable in there that the cloth was attached to, but I can't get into the hole to try to hook a new string or something on there. Does anybody know how to release the tension on this cable so I can pull it out the front of the seat and repair it?

If you ratchet your seat all the way forward, you should be able to trigger the release to fold the seat forward from the rear. Once folded forward, look in the fold, specifically on the bottom of the backrest there's 3 interlocking pieces pf plastic. Separate those and you should be able to work the upper seat cover off. Once thats off, you can make the required repairers. Tie a long string to the new loop and feed it through the hole on the seat cover, then reverse to install the cover again. Pull on the string to pop your loop back thru the hole.

Hope that helps
