Just bought a replacement G-body adjuster cable off ebay for the 50/50 bench seat in my Malibu. It is so loose the passenger side runner won't unlatch when the adjuster handle is pulled.

Anybody have a pic of how the cable is routed from factory? There doesn't appear to be anything on my seat it could hook to as a guide to tighten tension but I figure there has to have been one at some stage.....the cable isn't just loose.....it is very, very loose so I doubt stretch is part of the equation...

I usually just bend it a couple of times just like Doober said.
