Stripped tranny pan bolt.

Hey guys,
So I changed my fluid and when I was putting on the pan the last bolt started to slip when I backed it out the helicoil came out with it. So has any one have/found a solution to this problem, should I re-helicoil or just drill and tap the hole. Also will I have to remove the pan or can I do it with it on?

Thanks

Ive never had a helicoil come out, but have sure put a bunch in with the pan on. I cant speak for the 6.0 trannies but on the 4R100 none of the bolt holes for the pan are open to the inside of the trans, so there is no chance of getting drill cuttings or tap shavings inside the transmission.
