Can't tell you that because I'm too stupid, ... Ahh, ... I mean I don't know, ... Ahh, ... I mean because every car is different. Some tracks are riveted on to the base but usually the seat is bolted to the base too so you can just do it that way. Transplant the entire base.
On some, the track's rivets can be ground off if there is room to get to them with an angle grinder. Problem is you usually won't have access to power for a grinder in a salvage yard. If the tracks are welded to the base, you're pretty much stuck getting the entire base.
The goal is to find the easiest way to get what you need at a pick-your-own-parts salvage yard. If you have to go to a regular yard, they have to pay an employee to remove what you need, and the least expensive way to get a track might be the most labor-intensive, and therefore, the most costly. If it's easier and faster for them to remove the entire base, that will be the easiest for you too. Keep in mind too that if they are willing to cut rivets to sell you just the tracks, that could leave the rest of the base as useless and not something they can sell. That means they will likely want to charge you for the entire base even though they didn't give it to you.
