Look for a lever, which is located at the seat on the opposite side of the door. This lever has a hook where the cable notch/head attaches.
I know it is difficult but you need to feel your way under the seat where the lever is and move it in order to release the seat lock. I had to do this several times on my ML 320 until I got tired and secured the cable notch to the lever hook.
See photos below...
Note: I just posted another photograph.. Seems like the lever changed from my old 2001 ML 320 to my current 2005 ML 500.. It is more like a rotating tube with a tab... You can see the cable how it pulls the lever around the tube...
2005 ML 500
Black, 18" AMG Wheels, 285/60R18 Yokohama Geolander HTS + Bi-Xenons(+ Drew's e-code mod, though the reflectors rusted off and do not give out much light anymore), Yakima roof bars, Akebono pads all around. Former vehicle 2001 ML 320 with 108K miles, when traded, and a large repair/defect history. After all these years of owning my current 2005 ML 500, it is a major unreliable vehicle with a very large/expensive repair/defect history and has been like this since brand new.
