Lumbar support '08 250 CC King Ranch Drivers seat

Hi All,
I have an '08 250 Crew Cab with the King Ranch interior. I noticed over the last few months that the lumbar support seemed a little bouncy, hard to explain, but I knew something was up. Anyhow, a week or so ago, I got in the truck and sat back, and the lumbar support seemed to compress. The wheel on the side of the chair that's used to adjust the support just spins now, no tension on it.

Does anyone know how to access the lumbar support to see if I can repair it? Is this an air bladder, or some sort of spring contraption?

any advise is appreciated.

I just had my drivers side seat out and disassembled this past weekend (sorry, didn't take any pics). When your turn the lumbar support knob, it pulls on a cable like a hand brake cable on a bike. The other end of the cable pulls down on a plastic "cage" that as it compresses, forces itself against the seat back. You should be able to look/reach under the seat and find the black plastic covered cable and make sure that it is attached to the handle. As far a checking the cage/lumbar support, I think you would have to disassemble the seat. It's pretty easy to do. Good luck!
