Jammed driver's seat

Some coins dropped underneath the driver's seat and fell right into the forward/reverse tracks. It was jammed up. I removed all the coins. It now moves on the tracks, the seat moves all the way forward, but only back to the point where the coins jammed it up. The motor just decides to stop at that point. There is no grinding or slow struggling. When it hits that point it acts as though it is all the way to the rear. Any thoughts?
Thanks

There still may be a coin or two within the track. Have you checked the inner track (r-side), closest to the center console?
