convertible top receiving latch plate..thing

The two screws that hold the ragtop latch plate on the top of the windshield has failed and won't hold the latch itself up anymore. Anybody have a similar experience. sux now b/c I have to screw in the plate every time I put the top down or else the two screws will literally fall from the sky and get lost in between the seats, ask me how I know. I improvised with thicker screws to hold it up temporarily I contacted porsche and they aren't able to isolate any one part. Thanks for reading. TIA.
