seat rail separation

Is there any way to separate a seat rail mount (part that bolts to the seatbox) from the slider? looks like they dimple the metal to keep them from sliding apart. i got a seat rail where the rivnuts that are fastened from the inside are no longer attached. Need to pull apart to try and fix it. Thanks

I see now that they are dimpled to prevent separation, and likely have ball bearing in the tracks that catch the dimple. I pulled the bolts and used a bandsaw to cut them down small enough so the factory rivnuts and bolts slid out of the tracks. I will likely put some rivnuts in the 3 rail fastener holes and hope they are shallow enough not to catch anything.
