Passenger seat not locking in position

The passenger seat has decided that it wants to slide back and forth and not lock in to position. It's quite amusing the first couple of times you send your passenger sliding towards the windscreen but after that they rumble it and things get a bit tense.

Any ideas what might be awry? I have tried releasing it (as though getting in the back) and re-siting it but it still slides about.

Is the handle dropping back down or is it still in the "up" position?

It's a cable.. so either the spring on the end (that pulls it down) is broken, or the cable is sticking (if pinched somewhere... though it could be physically snapped).
