That's a fairly common occurrence, even with stock grille you can run into this problem. Remove the top part of the grille and use Glue the nut back in place.

It depends, some times it strips, some times it comes loose. There's no way you can predict WTF is going on..... even with OEM parts. The design of the E90 grille is so flawed. Either way, you have to pull it out and see what the problem is.
