Wonder for know if there is a way you could use an expanding fixing just to hold it (like you get in DIY stores) or somehow use tywraps. Or those push in plastic automotive firtree fixings that are used for fixing trim.

Hopefully others may have some bright ideas.

I think there should be some type of caged nut to take the screw.

Agreed, dont take the tray off, I drove a Galaxy with no tray once, as I turned water sprayed onto power steering pulley and I lost steering power, nearly totalling the car.
