Removal of seat rails from frame?

Having no luck trying to pull the seat rails, (the ones that bolt to the seat box) from the frames. I want to strip and paint the frame in pieces. There seems to be a ball bearing in there to stop it from sliding off. Any suggestions from those who have pulled them out.

Thanks,
Mark

mark, you need to remove the entire mount. There are 4 bolts at each corner that hold the seat and slide mount to the seat box, and lift the whole assembly out.

I have the entire assembly removed from the truck - trying to pull the rails out from the frame itself.

Thanks,

I thought I would piggy back on this thread. I am replacing the MOD seats in my truck with a set from of full seats from a 97 NAS. The replacement seats are complete with adjusting rails, etc.

I pulled the 4 bolts which hold the MOD seat frame to the adjusting brackets, but the adjusting brackets holes dont line up with the NAS seat holes (there is 1 bolt hole on the NAS seats).

It appears I need to pull the adjusting brackets all together and drill a single new hole at each corner for the NAS seats. Just making sure Im on track.

The older seat has two bolts in each corner while the newer seats only use one. If you take the seat frame off of the seat slider you can just swap them over so that you can use the two hole set up. Of course if the older seat sliders are in good condition. The Philips head screws are hard to get loose, I had to use a impact driver to loosen them. On two I had to drill the head off. I just did it on a set of seats and it isn't too hard to do.

Thanks, Capt. I pulled all 8 of the passenger seat flat heads and will head to Home Depot for 4 bolts. The new seat frames and sliders are in great shape compared to the MOD ones..

Any advice on grade of bolts? Also thinking a big washer and lock nut to spread some of the force could be useful.

Thanks again!

This is a worth while upgrade. So much more comfortable and safer but most important these seats sit up higher to clear the lip and slide all the way back giving my 6'2" legs probably 4-6" of additional leg room! Unexpected bonus.

Yep those look like the standard seats. The make extended slides but the rear bulkhead and lip may be an issue unless you do something to raise the track. A couple vendors sell the extended sliders.

I was thinking about those higher rails, but these got me up over that lip which is all I needed to do so they now slide back over that lip. Now if I did the bulkhead removal, I'd definitely get them so I could push further back and tilt back more too!
