Segment protector fasteners

I noticed on my curbside segment protector in the middle the rivets had backed out and caused the aluminum in the segment to split where it attaches. I have no idea how long ago this happened or what could have caused it. I saw one other post about this, but there were no replies to his post. The proper way to repair this is to replace the segment and re-attach the segment protector. My feeling is that I may want to just patch it with aluminum and order some higher segment protectors to replace the lower ones that were put on in 2005 models. This would cover the patch and further protect the segment higher up. Has anyone come across this problem or heard or seen this before?
Thanks
