need help to fix side step

I have this type of mopar side step(below) and one of the screws came out. I tried screwing it back in but keeps spinning. Can I buy replacement hardware for this? anyone have this issue before.

It sounds like the U-nut broke, it just slips onto the sheet metal and the screw goes into it with the sheet metal keeping it from spinning to tighten it down. You can get them from the dealer but Auto Zone has them as well.
