2014 GMC Terrain SLT power driver's seat issues...

Hello everyone!

I am having issues with the power driver's seat on my 2014 GMC Terrain SLT. The other day it stopped working, but just the part that moves the seat forward-and-back. The up-down adjustment still works, as does the reclining seatback and the lumbar. Even the seat memory positions 1 and 2 still try to work, but of course it can't completely due to the forward-and-back not working. I think it is the motor and after so many years of moving back and forth every time the car is locked/unlocked, it is just worn out. If I move the button that makes the seat go back-and-forth, all I get is a 'click' noise. Just wanted to see if anyone with the same or near model year has had any issues with theirs. I checked the tracks on both sides and didn't see any obstructions. Right at the front of the right-hand track, I found a piece of something and I'm not sure if it is something from the seat, or if it is just part of something else that just happened to fall into the track. It was lying at the very front edge of the track, and the seat is stuck pretty far back, so I am thinking this is not what caused the issue but just wanted to mention it and post some pics of the piece I found in case anyone else that has had seat issues might have found something similar in their tracks (see pics below).

Thanks for any advice/help that anyone can provide.

On my 2013 Nox I had a similar issue where it would not recline, but the other 7 functions worked. I took the seat out, removed the switch and sprayed a ton of electrical contact cleaner in it and worked the switdh in all directions and repeated a few times. Put it back together and it worked perfectly for several years until I traded it in.

It may not be the problem for this issue, but could help others maybe.
