Passenger seat won't move backwards

Hey guys!

New to the m3. Just bought one a month ago.

My passenger seat won't move backwards all the way so I'm not able to screw the two front bolts.

Does this mean the seat motor controlling is bad?

does anything else on that seat work? Do you hear a "click" when you press the button?

I had this exact thing happen in a pair of seats I bought, all other functions worked except for moving the seats back. They were a bitch to remove, but once out the problem was clear. The cable inside the seat that the motor connects to has a sheathing, in mine the sheathing had come apart and become a tangled mess which prevented the motor from operating. If your motor still makes a clicking noise like it should be operating, Iíd bet thatís the issue. Good luck!
