Tracking- save x and y separate

Hi Guys!

I'm having a Problem here and can't seem to figure it out myself.

After tracking some footage I'd like to add the track on 3 different layers called:

1. "X&Y-Tracker"
2. "X-Tracker"
3. "Y-Tracker".

I Suppose you can see where I'm getting at.
As soon as I apply the track on the third layer it get's "locked" to that layer. Meaning I can't apply the Track with only the X-Coordinates on the second Layer.
Not that it doesn't let me do it, just nothing happens. It stays with the first one.

I tried a work-around where I stayed with the X & Y, marked all keyframes and set Y to 0, but that just freezes the X to whatever position it is at the moment.

I've never needed to devide the tracking axis, so this is a real hassle and I'd be more than greatfull for some help!
