Oh man o man did I fk it up today

I over torqued a bolt putting on the thermostat. It's still somewhat tight but it's fkn stripped...

So the thermostat is held in with 4 bolts, 3 10mm's and a 13mm. The 10mm bolt underneath the 13mm bolt (one on the right) is stripped.

Has this happened to anyone?

Is it as easy as rethreading it to a different size? Luckily it was the bolt on the right, not the ones on the left that are directly holding the thermostat in place.

Any assistance and help would be great
