Power Seats W208 CLK 55

I have new found problem in my car which I have no idea how to fix. :crybaby2:
It has caused my car to become undrivable which even more annoying. :confused:

Basically, one evening after a long road trip I came home and moved the driver seat foward to reach into the back to take out some belongings. I then tried to returned the seat back to its original position. The actualy seat back went to its orginal position but the seat itself wouldnt' slide back into place. I then tested the power seat to see what functions were working and were not. The headrest / seatback and thigh support all move. Basically, I can move all parts of the seat except the backwards and forward motion to let my 6 foot frame fit in.. I also believe that the raising and lowering motion will not work. So currently its stuck as close as possible to the steering wheel and I have to struggle to get in and out. If I was about 5'1, its be perfect to drive.

I have already tried removing the fuse and replacing it with no effect.

If anyone could help me explain what could possibly be wrong or know how to fix it I would really appreciate it.

dead/jammed motor, warped seat tracks or something stuck in the tracks. Try to hit the motor lightly and see if it's just jammed (this is what my mechanic did and it worked). This topic has been covered over and over so you should search.
