2nd row seat fold and tumble issue need help

hi guys,
new here and have a quick question. im trying to fix my passenger side rear seat. one of the cables is messed up and preventing me from being able to fold the seat forward. ive taken the cushion off and removed the cable box and cove. one of the cables is off of the (box cam) and im not sure how to route it back correctly. if anyone has a detailed illustration from the service manual it would be awesome.

Thanks for all the help guys. Just kidding. I believe I have it figured out. It appears that the cable cam/wheel is broken. There was a cable pulled off of the wheel when I opened it up, but I'm not exactly sure where it attaches to the mechanism. Or if it is broken. I called a couple of dealerships today, but I'm still not sure which part number I need to order. All of the part descriptions say cable, and the picture/diagrams they provided are a joke.
The part numbers are: mopar 5183652AA I'm thinking this is the whole mechanism with the five cables already hooked up and ready to install
And mopar# 5183692AA , the diagram points to the lift handle box but in the part description it describes this part as " this cable"
I'm really scratching my head here
The number molded into the black plastic on the part is 28-2480-WO, but that doesn't match and mopar part #

Josh, I hope someone replies, but this is the first I remember hearing this problem. Have you tried Utube?

Did you ever attempt to fix this? Currently stuck up right also, trying to figure out how to even take the cushion off right now.

yes i fixed it. If you can pry or pull back the plastic panel in between the center seat there is a tab/ lever that you can push back and fold the seat forward. as far as the bottom seat cushion i started behind the seat. the seat cover wraps under the frame, and is held in place by a strip built into the upholstry. you can push down on the seat cushion and start working the strip out of the frame groove. ill get on auto guide and post the pictures i took while replacing the cable assembly
