Removing big sheet covering bottom of engine etc

Hi all, sorry I don't know the propper name.

The big black fiber/plastic sheet held on by numerous bolts underneath the engine compartment that I presume is there to stop water and crap from the road going up into the engine.

Mine is only held on by a couple of bolts as for some reason all the other nuts have broken (spin round so there's no way of tightening the bolts).

One of the two remaining ones has also broken, basically the bolt is also turning around whatever is being used as a nut, the nuts supposed to be fixed to the bodywork, but has come loose.

I can force it off breaking the nut in the process, just wondered what you would suggest I use in it's place. The position of these makes using a normal nut impossible as it's totally inaccessible to hold the nut still.

Hope you understand what I'm trying to explain

Many thanks
