What's the secret to taking these latches off the seats?

I want to blast and cad plate them, and get the seat brackets PC'd, but I can't figure out how to get them off.

Got a pic of the inside? Based on that pic, the center pin is most likely pressed in to the seat frame or some sort of frame rivet kind of thing.

Needs to be ground off... non serviceable

Sor has/had a seat service kit to replace them with

As far as I can see, the center pin is pressed into the seat bracket, and then welded on from the back side. It sure looks like it is non serviceable to me.

As I said in post 5 :)

Once ground off ... get the sor kit

:)
or after you grind the back off, save the 35$ and drill and tap the back for a m6 or m8 so you can bolt it on with a nice beefy washer. the money you save you can plate your parts for free.
