If you mean the bowden cables, none of those extend from the seat bottom to the seat back. There is one for the headrest, but the motor is inside the backrest too -- it's all self-contained. The only connection you have to worry about is the electrical cable that goes from the headrest motor to the control switch.

There is one oddity about taking the seat apart: the backrest clips onto the wedge-shaped hinge extensions standing up from the seat bottom frame in the diagram below. A spring mechanism holds the seat back in place on the hinge extensions, and it takes a little jimmying to get the clips to release so you can take the two halves of the seat apart.
