Help Car seat poser....?

Good Afternoon Alfisti......
I have suffered what appears to be the classic seat ratchet (height adjuster) going boing!
Like many I aim to repair this in the safest, effective and economical way possible. Found a number of suggestions which seem to include welding. I neither have a handy friend nor welding gear available to do this easily. So...thinking aloud and a bit leftfield here....has anyone split the bottom half of seat sub-frame from the upper section? I have had the passenger seat out (for something else)and that was no trouble. However didn't really have a very good look at the time.
If its do-able how easy/difficult (I am pretty determined) because I have several seats/sets of seats I'm watching on ebay...and prepared to butcher a donor seat to preserve mine as they are grey leather and not bad looking. Ideally in short I would like to separate the original (busted mech) from seat upper and then transplant the upper onto a good lower sub-frame and then refit and smile all the way to the bank, patting myself on the back...

Am I totally off my trolley or is this a viable proposition...

Many thanks all
