Clio B sunroof bolts don't tighten and just keep turning

Hi guys,

I've come across a really annoying problem after trying to tighten the bolts to stop the damn sunroof from rattling. A couple of the bolts just don't tighten and it looks like the thread hole for them has come loose on the sunroof frame and just keep turning with the bolts!

Anyone got any ideas on how to hold these things still while I tighten the bolts? I've tried prying a small flat head screw driver between the thread hole and the metal frame it sits on before the bolt but I can't get any leverage on it :/
