My bolt stripped the threads as I removed it (had to weld a nut onto it to remove it) and it wasnt stuck in but the bolt had a drill bit that broke off inside the bolt sticking out of the corner which ruined the threads on the way out. (first the drill bit broke off inside and then the screw extractor broke off inside the bolt) I cleaned up the threads with a tap and I'm hoping a longer bolt will grab some threads and hold. If not , I will have to drill the threaded hole out and go to a #12 diameter tap and bolt.
