Do Malibu seat tracks come apart?

Hi guys,

I have a set of '68 (I believe because they have the release button on the back) buckets in my '66 Malibu & was wondering if the 2 parts of the tracks come apart. I want to blast & refinish them but can't tell by looking between them. Is there a tab or something you can press to seperate them? I'm talking about the part that does the sliding & the part that bolts to the floor.

Thanks a lot!

Yes they do come apart, most have a stamped stop on the end that has to be bent to allow the parts to pass or a solid rivet that has to be removed. Been a few years.

It depends on the way way the track is built. Some tracks, if taken apart, you will have a pile of ball bearings to deal with.
