try working the bolts back and forward, tight/loose/tight/loose. they are prolly either seized in there, or they put loc-tite on the bolts(which is common)

well yeah, but you could use a blow dryer. it may not get it hot enough to completely loosen it but maybe it'll get it enough to let em work it out

Best way is to use an actual seat belt socket
