Hello and welcome to just answer Your input is very valuable so we can pinpoint this problem. When it comes to this type of seat problem I usually remove all 4 seat bolts that hold it down so I may see all thew works and have good access to do my tests. If it clicks as you stated that's a good thing to a piont. after you get access to the underneath , check both sides of the track for any obstruction or jamming. Make up a jumper wire and apply power and ground directly to the motor to see if it operats. After you do this get back to me with your results.
