Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

I have had this problem, and I am having it again. The problem is if a little trash gets under the bar in the floor, it will keep the mechanism from locking completely. I had tried everything. The only solution so far is the rock back and forth. Real pain. I am trying to find a secret release.

You might have a problem with the wiring under the seat. The best thing to do is to reach under the seat and move some of the wires away from the track that the seat moves along. Most likely there is a short to ground because the wires are rubbing against the seat track as it is moved back and forth. You need to grab a flashlight and look under the seat for wires touching the seat tracks. When you find them, you can most likely use some electrical tape to wrap the exposed wires and keep those wires from touching each other and that area from touching the seat track. Make sure you route the wires away from the seat track tight enough to the seat's underside, but loose enough to allow the wires to move with the seat as it travels the full length of its track. The fuse for the seat has probably blown so you would need to replace the power seat fuse AFTER you wrap and reroute the wires to prevent blowing the new fuse.
Hope this helps!
