power seat looseness

Praise be to Audi gods! Everything is pretty much "up to par" with my '91
200q, so now I'm down to dealing with a small, but most damnable and
irksome glitch: the fore-and-aft looseness of the driver's 6-way power
seat. There's a sudden shift of 1/16"- 1/8" (couple o' millimeters perhaps)
that is disturbing, if not downright unnerving every time I
decelerate--even from moderate speeds. The seat tracks seem tightly
fastened to the floorpan, so I assume there's slop in the adjuster gearing.
Has anyone a sure-fire cure (so I can optimistically proceed to take the
seat apart)?

BTW, the looseness mostly goes away when the seat is moved to the extreme
(front/back) positions.
