Question Windshield hinge weld nut plate?

Hi all,

I've been searching for some information on what I think is a nut plate that is used to attach the lower half of the passenger-side windshield hinge to the body. I seem to have broken a weld nut loose while mounting my Gobi rack and I need to replace the plate or JB weld the nut in-place. I assume I need to take the entire dash off to get at the plate (if it is a plate). Has anyone had any experience with this nut plate and/or removing the entire dash to get at it.

Thanks in advance,

Just had the windshield on my 2013 replaced. The installer told me the nut plate is held by a single spot weld. The fix was somewhat vague but I believe it had something to do with drilling the bolt out. Good luck on the repair.
