Tandem grips back bolt loose

I had to plug a flat tire and when I remove the seat, I noticed that the tandem grips are moving. After a closer look, I realized that the back bolts are loose.
No problem, I'll tighten them......aaaaaaaaaaaa

there is no nut left in the frame !?!!? how do they hold on the frame?
I looked in the Parts catalog, page 56, in the C position it should be what?!?!
is there a nut that I loose? or it was a nut welded to the frame and it disappeared?!!

I have a trunk and I think it moved too much and it worn out the nuts!? I looked at the bolt and the threads are ok.

Help!
