Default Help. Transmission Mount Hole on Chassis is stripped.

Okay long story short, I just bought a EK hatch w a d16y7
So I was wondering why my shifting was rough and felt like my motor was moving going from neutral to first.
I bought all new polyurethane mounts, while having them installed i then noticed that one of my motor mount bolt hole is stripped. (it is one of the 3 bolts that holds the transmission mount to the chassis.
that explains the rough shifting.

heres a picture

it looks like the bolt is in there at a certain angle because its tight in one side and not in the other.

I tried tightening it and thats as far as it would go.
Is there any thing I can do about this?
This really ruined my day discovering this.

any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

So the bolt will tighten, right? If so, try adding some washers to the bolt.
