Rear seat remote latch

Anyone have the cable in one of their rear seat remote recline latches break yet?
Mine did today. I hardly ever used it and when I did, I would make it a point to pull the lever sooooooo slowly due to the fact that it feels so fragile. Today when I went to use it, it just snapped.
Add it to the list of issues on the biggest POS vehicle I have ever owned! This lease can't end soon enough!!

The cable that is behind the panel snapped.

Did it actually snap or did it come loose/out of the clip? The cable routes to a secondary connector thatís under the Rear seat and trim. Could have come loose similarly to the hood release cable issue.

Do you know it it's easily accessible?

its not that hard actually. There was some threads here about sub woofer install and remote start installs that helped me figure out how to dismantle The interior - I was trying to get access to a dent in the quarter panel from the inside.

I think if you remove the side panel and the trim cover in the rear seat/floor area you should be able
to see it rather easily. I know I saw it when I was digging around.
