Need Help With Front Seat Removal

I need to remove the front seats on my 2010 RT Classic. Can anyone tell me if those peculiar bolts that attach the seat rails to the floor are a cover or some kind of special bolt?
Does anyone know what type and size of wrench or socket is needed to remove these?
Thanks in advance.

Screw the environment, I drive fast!

Metric nuts, appears that it would be easiest to remove rails from floor then tracks from the seats. If you have heated seats there will be an electric conection. Also for power seats. Off hand it looks like 15 and 17 or 18 MM

Okay Danman , I know about metric sizing on bolts, but what I don't understand is the 4 bolts attaching the seat rails to the floor are like nothing I have seen before. Instead of having six sides like any hexagonal
nut or bolt head they look kind of like a flower or more specifically like what the center hole in a Torx bolt looks like.
Is this what you meant by metric nuts?

Ok, ran down and looked, pass seat is 13mm in front (vertical) and rear bolts are 15mm. The drivers side is a whole different ballgame. The "star" looking bolts can be removed with a 12 point socket or wrench. I put a 10mm and it was loose so i would venture 9mm or 3/8 inch 12 point will work

Thanks Danman. I never even looked at the passenger seat after seeing the "star bolts. "
I 'll try the 12 points on the star bolts. I wonder if it's some attempt by Chrysler to stop people from working on the power seat themselves?

May be that the power seat is sensitive to adjustment, so watch carefully. I must say its the stranges feeling power seat I hace ever felt.
