Skid Plate Question

Very curious ...My TJ will be in need of a clutch job.... while I was changing driveline fluids I noticed that the skid plate that is directly under the tranny & t-case is bolted to the FRAME of the car. One of them just spins by had nut & stud and there are 3 more just like it. Once this plate is off how will it be placed back on if the studs go into the FRAME and they spin inside???

Any input is greatly appreciated

There are nutserts in the holes. They will have to be removed and replaced. Do a search on the forum for trans skid or nutserts. Someone did a write up on here not too long ago.
