Trouble with my seat! Please Help!

So today I tried to put my passenger seat up and found out that the mechanism that allows the seat to flip forward all the way. I am able to make the flip seat forward by reaching under the seat and pulling the lever underneath with my hand. Does anyone know what happened to it that would cause this to happen? I have an '02 TJ.

If the problem is that the seat is not "tumble"ing it's because the cable below the seat got broken..

Both my seats dont work with cables anymore, I have to pull the levers ..

I had the same problem. Luckily, the wire wasn't broken - the clip on the end that controls the lever at the bottom of the seat had come off. A simple re-clip and I was back in business. Check to see if it is broken or not before buying a new one. The link that gixxerphil posted is a great one, and the dealership is probably the easiest place to get a new one if needed. Definitely take the part number with you when you go!
