power-to-manual seat swap

In case I can't find a power seat at the junkyard, would a 2000 manual seat bolt in where I remove the 2000 power seat?

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Sorry if I didn't make myself very clear. I'm not trying to weld anything. I'm trying to expand my chances of getting a cheap seat by looking at junkyards for either a power or non-power driver seat for my 2000 Grand Cherokee. Right now it's a power seat which has a frame with mutiple breaks in it. If I can't find a power seat but do find a non-power seat (from a 1999 to 2004 Grand Cherokee) I was wondering if that would work. In other words, 1) is the bolt pattern the same and, 2) would any other modifications need to be made to swap to a non-power seat (other than removing the old electrical stuff)?

The top of your response said just "yes". So I can unbolt the power seat with the four floorpan bolts and replace it with a non-power seat, and the holes will line up and the seat will work manually just like a manual seat is supposed to? Thanks again. This forum is fantastic.

If you take a non power seat from a junk yard take the track with it. Not 100% positive but I'm pretty sure the tracks are different. The only difference between the actual seats it's the power motor

Yeah ignore what I said about the tracks. I was thinking of converting a seat to power. The seat will just bolt in
