How can I replace a single audio track in an already edited/cut sequence?

I have a video that has desktop audio on track 1, and narration audio from microphone on track 2. This has always worked for me. But I recently got a subscription to TimeBolt which automatically deletes portions of silence within the video, and then exports to XML for further edits in Premiere. This saves me a ton of time manually removing those bits of silence in my narration.

 

I've imported the XML file into Premiere and the cuts are great. But the source file was changed from 2 tracks to 4 (two desktop audio, two narration), and the cut sequence only uses 2 tracks and it's just the top two of the same desktop audio. My narration is gone.

 

New source file now has 4 tracks:

Imported XML sequence is cut great but only using A1 and A2 from source file, and not A3 or A4 (no narration, only background music):

So I'd like to replace one of those audio tracks with either 1) track 2 of my original original file (the one not imported via XML, because that one still looks fine with only two audio tracks, not four), or 2) track 3 or 4 from the track imported via the XML import.

 

Basically, I don't know why it imported like this, and I sent a contact form to TimeBolt to see what happened, but I'm hoping there's a way to fix this through something in Premiere.

 

Thanks for your help!

I can't comment on what Timebolt has or hasn't done but try right clicking on the clip in the project panel (the clip associated with the new cut sequence) and choose modify/audio channels. You can't update the number of audio clips already on the sequence but you can change where the channels come from. Ensure you have the checkbox at the bottom of the dialogue checked. Have an experiment and see if you can get the channels you need.
