I've "reseated" nuts in plastic parts in the past by heating the nut and pushing the hot nut in the plastic part, that way melting the plastic to house the nut. It will also depend on the type of plastic (,how thick is it) and how well you can reach it, but if the bolt is still in it you could try gently heating and pulling the bolt? With a bit of luck the nut should stay in place after cooling down.Any tips on getting nuts out of a no-longer-available plastic cover, please lemme know.
