About a year ago after hours and hours of tedium I was able to disasemble the '65 barracuda drivers side bucket seat track. I dont remember now how I did it. Anyone know the trick? Those chrome spheres seem to always remain permanently trapped. Thank you.

I'm doing my seat bases now and I'll try to get some pictures for you tonight! I just have them cleaned up but don't have them back together yet.

Dibbons, I tried to get that part out of my seat bases but I can't get those roller bearing parts even out. It looks like they punched down a spot so they can't be pulled out of my bases. I'll keep trying though. On the passenger seat I just brake cleaned the track and forced in new grease and the seat slides absolutely perfect.
I can see the roller bearing in the seat base but that's it.

I did take some pictures before I cleaned the tracks. This is a picture before anything came apart by me. You will notice the spring clips that hold the adjustment line are off and one is completely missing but the routing is correct.. Hopefully this helps you.
