    I replaced the vtec solenoid seals for my 2007 Odyssey and thought I stripped one of the holes using my new harbor freight torque adapter… when I took it back off, I saw the coils on the threads of the bolt (guessing it was done at the dealer back when I could afford to pay). My question is, how do I fix it? Can I run in a new coil (if so, how do I get the remaining failed coils out), do I need to re-tap? Do I have to re-drill? Does that mean bigger hole bigger coil? I have no experience with helicoils but I liked your video and think I could do one “from scratch” but not sure how to fix one that failed. Thanks, Jeff
