Stripped coil pack bolt

Any suggestions? Just bought the car (02 S) and tried to change the plugs and tubes only to find that one of the coil pack bolts is stripped. Can't get a drill in there and it's pretty much round. All the others were fine.

Stumped on this one.

Can you tap it out and replace the bolt?

Your best bet is to use a vice plier, because I don't think you have space to wield a nut to it. So use a vice plier with sharp teeth and loosen it up then it should come off by hand after the initial turn. Hope this helps.

space is the issue. can't tap it and can't weld it. it's the top bolt middle of the driver's side bank.
