    check the shaft that connects the seat motors. the end piece that holds them together sometimes can come apart, but can be fixed with a little persuasion. If just one of the shafts falls out / breaks it'll still pull the seat forward but not have the juice to push it back on the two screws. Easiest way to do this is to pull the seat out. This is whats happened to mine before, but it could be the motors burnt out or something else.

    I had a same problem, It was white little cap missing, motor turns other side rod but not the one side cap missing, basically just one rod moved till seat got crooked enough won't move anymore.

    I ordered cap from vender also member here and problem solved, I added hot glue over it to secure it won't fail off again.
