Stock side steps and corrosion


I have a 2008 KK with factory installed side steps. It seems as though the bolts that hold the plastic steps to the tubular steel are starting to corrode, it almost looks like the bolts might be aluminum and it is galvanic corrosion. Has anyone else experienced this and if so how did you fix it. I tried to remove one of the bolts but it just spun so I assume there must be a nut on the back side, and only accessable by taking an end cap off the tube.
I'm also working on replacement via the warranty but I assume it will just happen again.
