Stripped Caliper Mounting Point (On hub).

Hi guys.

I replaced the ABS reluctor ring on one side without any problems a couple of weeks ago. It turned out that the side I replaced was the only side damaged, so it sorted the ABS issues.

I thought I might as well do the other side as that'll sure to be rusting through soon, especially as it's under 2 per ring.

Unfortunately things have gone quite wrong as when I removed both caliper mounting bolts, I noticed the thread on one of them was severely damaged towards the end of the bolt. It had clearly been cross-threaded at some point, and unfortunately it's the same story with the threaded hole that the bolt goes in to. I know it's knackered as I shortened the bolt to remove the damage as a temporary fix, but the bolt will spin in the hole way before any decent torque can be applied.

I was wondering if any of you have experienced this before and whether you have any recommendations as how to sort it?

Thanks for any help!
