1999 996 C2 Cab soft top anchor point issue

Body

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 57000;

The anchor point for the top (both hard and soft) has fallen off due to the 2 bolts not holding any longer. It appears that the nuts have broken or become stretched over time to the point where the threaded bolts no longer grab. The soft top was replaced 18 months ago due to the rear window pulling away from the canvas. Since this change it never appeared that there was an alignment issue to cause this wear to occur. Suffice to say, the cause isn't my most pressing concern. I am curious how something like this can be fixed since there doesn't appear to be a way to get into the window frame where nuts anchors (nuts) are located. Any feedback would be helpful before I begin talking to local shops. Thanks.
