any ideas, seat bolts wont budge

The four bolts on the driver side seat wont turn. I think theyre gonna break if i give it hell. They are explorer bolts and bucket seats in my ranger. So theyre not the torx. And the drivers side seat is power and is coroded pretty bad. The motor works but the rails are siezed. I got the passenger side.

Correction. I broke off in the back on the passenger side. I thought it was turning. So i know the ones on the other seat aint gonna budge. They look a million times worse.

I spoke too soon. It had enough power to twist the front 2 off. The back 2 are all thats left and this is the crap part cuz i cant get the stupid power seat to move ahead. The aluminum rails are coroded to the metal tracks. The motor moves one side a little it looks like but i cant get the other side to break free. And the seat is all the way back so you cant get nothing on them. Also my truck aint a 4 door like my old one was.

I'm no expert with seats, but I would see if you can remove the rails from the seat itself. If you can get the seat off that way to gain access to the rails you might be saved.
