This has happened before and someone has addressed the issue using nutserts. There's a DIY page floating around out there that will show you the way. Actually, I have a PDF with the information you need. Shoot me an email and I'll attach it.

here's the r&r I wrote up about a year ago when I had to fix mine. The hardest part of the job is getting the old retainers out but once you get the hang of it, you're home free (tips listed on DIY). Good luck!
