Ditto, my 93 driver's seat bolt was hell to remove in 1999, it came out very slowly. I replaced the bolt, and it was worse this time. On that one I couldn't use the bit, it stripped. But I did get a good enough bite with a vise-grip from below, until it was loose enough to do from above. BTW, for legal purposes vehicles have to have matching seat belts. I had to use 99 model belts. The short belt on the side of the front seats is very tight, they have locktite red on them.
