Default fast/easy fix for a stripped hole in the frame?

I just notice that my front passenger torque mount has a stripped bolt there... It's in the frame and not very accessible to tap...not much room there... Anyone has an easy fix?

Drill and tap bigger size, not going to get much easier. Access isn't bad if you can get the car on a ramp/jack and use an extension on the tap.

I would helicoil it if possible, that way you can still use the oem size fasteners and won't have 1 oddball fastener.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what's an helicoil?

Cause right now, the easiest I though will be to drill an hole on top and use a long screw and catch it from there...

If you do that, please post pics in the "worst fab thread". Seriously, don't do that. Helicoil is like a spring. You have to drill bigger, tap then insert. It'd be easier to drill and tap to the bigger size.

Hey! I'm a racer so it dosen't have to look good...I just want my gear to get in when the car is load and I have to shift... It need to be fix for now... I'll cut and weld next winter!

I tried to find an extension for the tap but it seems to be hard to find... I did a couple store and couldn't find any...
