Villa power captain chair disassembly

Greetings. 2005 MADP currently undergoing Norcold to residential fridge conversion.
I removed the passenger seat and the two wires that enter the seat assembly at the rear pulled out from underneath the seat. The end of each wire was stripped bare about 1"...and no connectors. It appears that the seat was manufactured with the short pigtail exiting the rear of the seat, and Newmar spliced to the pigtail. Apparently, it is impossible to get to the motor connections without disassembling the seat.
I have read threads about disassembling the seat for motor replacement, etc.
Does anyone have any tips/advice on disassembling the seat and/or reconnecting the wires?

Most electric seats I have seen always had a plug connector.
I would remove seat leave wires to motor in tack and install a plug at splice point when reassembling.
That said some people always had problems with wire connections in their plugs coming loose and needed to be crimped in plug.

I expected to find some type of plug, but alas, Newmar spliced to the seat wiring with butt connectors.
I will definitely add a plug, but I have to disassemble the seat and reconnect the wires that pulled out.
Looked on the internet for information about disassembling the seat, but no luck....

Should be able to see the wires might have to unclip them and pull them out to put the new end on unless the wires are short
