Not sure about the 37, but on the 34 the bolts/nuts on the inside are covered only with carpet material and are located within one of the interior cabinets. I'd think cutting the carpet material away with a box knife would easily expose the backing plates and hardware. Fore and aft, the interior hardware is painted over. If they are mounted similar to the backing plates for the winches, looks like they were installed with generous amounts of 3M 5200, so you may need to slice through that under the backing plate with a wire guitar string or similar after you get the nuts off.
