Seat removal w/cable not attached

Does anyone know how to remove the seat if the cable release is not attached?

do you know which end of the cable is loose? If it is the key end, you can remove the rear fender and manually pull on the cable. If it's the other end...I'm not sure.

It is the other end. I had the rear fender removed, and like a dummy I put the seat on.

I got it. If you take off the left panel below the seat you can reach the release with a metal clothes hanger
