Rear door lock actuator bracket removal

I got to work last week on real cold morning. When I locked the doors I heard a snap and something fell down inside the rear driver side door. Turns out the bracket that the door actuator sits on broke. I think the actuator is still good, I just need to replace the bracket. I cant figure out how to get it out though. I can turn the metal round threaded part on the outside of the door but I cant get a screw driver to grab on the inside. Any ideas would be great.
Thanks

On mine, it was a large rivet that I had to drill out. I used a stainless 1/4" screw/nut combo on reinstall. Cheers!

It is a LARGE steel 1/4" rivet. You need to either drill or grind it off.
If that "bracket" broke. Good luck getting another one
