1995 GMC Yukon 2-door.

Rear bench release latch is broken which will not allow the bench to fold forward. The black cables that attach to the release are clearly visible, but I am unable to understand how the black cables connect to the hinge to stop the seats from folding. I am assuming i am looking for a pin of some sort to allow the bench to fold. Any ideas to help me fold the bench forward would be greatly appreciated

Can you post a picture of your “Broken” release latch. Sometimes it is a cable rigging issue. The latches you are looking for are on the left and right side (See picture of fixed “Striker” of latch) of the bench seat. Unfortunately they are only visible as they release and the seat is moving forward. See below picture of the two cables under the “Release “ handle. Both of those cables will need to be simultaneously pulled, to unlock the seat. I really hate posting that picture of the stain on my carpet….
