Tailgate cable replacement

I have a 92 Ford Ranger and need to replace the cables that hold the tailgate up (they have rusted out and broken). I removed one of the bolts holding the cable to the tailgate and it looks like the nut on the other side dropped into the cavity of the tailgate - is there a way to remove the cables without losing the nuts? Am I missing something?

sounds like the carage nut broke off from inside the gate you might have an access hole on the inside of the tailgate you may need a body shop to replace the weld
