Driver seat won't go Forward nor Backwards?

As I was cleaning/prepping my car for storage yesterday, my power seat stopped going forward and backwards. All other options work on it though... When I do try to move it forward or backwards by the button, it just gives me a on-time clicking sound and that's it.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a motor issue, or could it be a coin stuck in the tracks? I'm not really sure what it could be. The car is stored now, and luckily it stopped working at a ok distance from where I normally like to sit.

Any info would help, Thanks!

I had a similar problem, turns out it a small screw fell into the track. Good chance you have some debris in there. Get a bright light and look carefully.

Thanks for the response. I'll be going to check the track of the seat. I really really hope it's just a problem of something being stuck. If it's a motor or something then that would be annoying! I noticed there are two motors under there.... not sure if anyone knows which is which. I don't have heated seats either..
