Loose CX-5 Spoiler Inserts

:
2016.5 Mazda CX-5 Sport 2.5L AWD
Today, I have looked at my rear spoiler(I remember, somebody pointed out a couple of days ago, about this noise coming from the back, but I can't find that thread), because I was hearing some weird noises coming from the rear.
I have removed the two rubber plugs, behind the spoiler and to my surprise, on the left side, the nut it was gone, I couldn't find it and on the right it was loose, I could turn it with my fingers.
I would suggest to everybody, to look at your spoilers.
Same thing here. I was hearing a rattling sound that was driving me crazy which led me to this post and sure enough it was a loose driver side spoiler nut - actually the nut came off the bolt and was rattling around inside the black plastic cover; the passenger side nut was still firmly attached to the bolt as were the 2 center nuts under the long black plastic trim piece.

My 2 black plastic triangular outside spoiler inserts are still loose so will try the double sided tape trick to see if that will stop the noise as well.
