need a nut

I tried to fix a squawk tonight and might have really botched it.  Check the image below...

Basically the headset jack is loose because it's missing a nut that goes over the phone jack (left side) and holds it set.  I was trying to figure out if it's mounted from behind or the front, and so I unscrewed that black plate that connects and fastens it to the sidewall, and as I unscrewed it I heard a little plunk of of metal falling and hitting metal.  I suspect a backing nut fell out of the back as I unscrewed it and fell somewhere down into the fuselage.  Doh!  I heard it happen twice since I unscrewed it from both sides... yes I'm an idiot.  I have no idea how in the world one could possibly put a little nut on the screws back there even if I ever find it in the fuselage...

Now I also need to find a replacement nut which I now know goes on the outside... like the one on the mic jack right side.
