6-WAY POWER SEAT ADJUSTER MAKING CLICKIN

1987 Buick Electra

Electrical problem
1987 Buick Electra 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 195000 miles

I have the 6 way adjustable seat option on my park avenue and I am having a problem with the " tilt" function. Forward and backward operation works smooth as silk but when you try to use the tilt in the " upward tilt motion", the side of the seat near the driver door tilts properly but when you reach about 1/2 way to maximum tilt, the left side of the seat bench (drivers side) continues to go up as the right side gets stuck and starts making a terrible clicking noise as if something is off track. Intuition is telling me it is a mechanical issue rather than an issue with the motor but I'm far from a professional. I'm considering taking the seat out (4 screws I think) and doing a visual inspection. Any ideas?

Check for a broken cable or gear on the drivers side.
