Well my mate turned the bolt the wrong way and over tightened it, Was a mission to get out but it came out eventually threaded and a spring bit aswell that is seriously wasted.

I could be wrong but that looks like a Heli-coil that came out... If it is, that means someone has already had to drill it out once before to install the Heli-coil.... My guess is you would have to do the same thing but get a bigger Heli-coil.... Can't help you much more than that... Never had to do one, hope I never have to.

be honest... it was not your mate, it was you right?

 

fix- just find a larger thread bolt and retap it to fit.
