Left side panel bolt wont thread...?

Hey guys,

I took my bike apart to do some basic maintenance and upon re assembling the bike for some reason the bottom bolt on my left side panel wont thread in! Now I have had the bolt off a dozen times and for some reason this time it wont go back in...its almost as if it had one of those cheap metal flanges behind the plastic and it has let go....

Anyway, I took a quick look and I dont quite know how to access it. It almost looks like its under my air box....has anyone else had some experience with this?

its probably stripped, take a flashlight and look extra close. you will see one of these:


you can get replacements at autozone if its stripped, it might just be slid out of the way so you arent catching the threads though
