Windshield trim screws

OK. So the screws that hold on the windshield trim piece in on the bottom front outside edge of the windshield are pretty grungy looking.
I was thinking of replacing them with new ones. What do they screw into? In the parts manual, it shows a nutplate, but as I start to loosen them, it feels as though whatever is on the backside it about to fall off if I remove the screw. I can't see where behind the inst. panel the nutplates (or whatever's there) are located. I started taking out one screw and find out it's not threaded into anything. Anyone have a clue on this? The windshields have been replaced at some point, so I'm thinking that who did the job must have been working for Helen Keller Aero.
