The W210 "E" class cars have a limiting feature built into the seat so that you don't SMASH a tall persons feet OR legs by moving the seat back(OR forward) too far. IF the computer feels that the seat motor is drawing too much current then it will stop there every time until you run the seat all of the way forward OR all of the way back so that it RE-learns its full travel. Neat HUH!
GLAD that it fixed your car!!
