I had 2 holes in the housing strip out on the driver's side (US driver). I ended up running bolts up from the bottom and putting the nuts on top of the housing because, as you have found, there's no room to get a nut underneath. The third bolt has been holding up (passenger side... if I remember correctly). I guess if that one strips out, you could possibly drill it out and replace it with a helicoil thread insert, if they make them that small. Or you could just tap it for a slightly bigger bolt. If all else fails, it's off to the bone yard for a replacement housing... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />
