Loose door striker

The door striker on our 1987 345 is loose. The two bolts just spin and do not tighten, just as if it needed a wrench on a nut on the back side. Has anyone encountered this and how was it resolved? This is the striker on the door frame, not the latch on the door.

Haven't had this problem, but I would bet it's the same as the door hinges. They have bolts and nuts,ie. you have to open the frame and retighten as I have had to do for the hinges. Somewhat of a pain, but doable!

Go get a Heli-Coil kit. It a thread insert. They use it to repair bad threads. I used it to fix my door
