Happy New Year to one and all, 

(I always think of Eddie Murphy in "Trading Places" when I hear that!)

So, we're talking MkII BT7 here..

The bolts that fasten the seat bases to the runners in my car are pretty
ratty. One or two are missing and several have had their diameters reduced
and rethreaded. Presumably after wearing out. But the slides work and
they're fully functional.

What is the precise anatomy of these things?

The bolts that come up from the part of the runner that moves fore & aft,
are they spotwelded in place?

Can one split the moving half of the runners from the fixed half?

In which case, I presume one can fix in new bolts? Remove hidden nuts or
grind off welds and MIG on new bolts?

What size are these bolts?
