Default Seat Swap Problem

Okay, I found a set of 9 way charcoal leather seats in the junkyard for 5o bucks, had to get them. They were from a 97 SSEi. I have a 96 SE. Checked the site for potential problems and the only thing I can't figure out is how to make seat belts work. One post said change the rails, but I'm not sure what that means, when I look underneath and will that work. Do I have any other options? Can the belt on my car be changed? Or can I change just the clip at the seat where the looks like a bolt holding it to the rail?

The problem lies with the difference in the seat belts. My 96 has metal and the 97 seats have plastic. They' re not interchangeble. I hope the guy Twister sees this, I don't know him to PM.

Click here for Twister97 to send a PM. He is logged on now though so he might see it.

Yeah, my car has the metal w/gm on it, and the new seats have the plastic. I'm trying to figure out how to swap them.
