    You could drill and tap it for hellicoil ....engineers supplies....requires technical knowledge
    Get the next size up of self tapping screw...local hardware shop....most people could.
    leave it out ......there are 3 others holding it down....ROW

    Try melting the area around with a hair dryer - might be able to mold it back into shape...

    or even a hot glue gun - inject into the hole and when cool, drill and start fresh

    G'day Francod123
    I use broken off matchsticks to fill the hole a little and use the original screw. You could use a little super glue to hold the matchsticks in place.
    Hope this helps,
    Cheers
    Brian :D
