Default How to fix the power seats?

My passenger seat has the electric recline on it. The motor is connected to a flexible cable, which moves the seatback. (back)

The motor is fine as well as the assmebly. The other end of the cable, which goes somewheres, and that somewheres is jammed up. If I am patient, the seat will move slowly, but it will burn the motor up.

So, any effective way of getting into the seat? Its already out of the car, just awaiting a reply as to how to properly take the seat apart to lubricate or unjam the recline mechanism?

Thanks in advance fellas!
