Door lock Bolt Stripped - Where to buy?

All,

I am in the process of changing out the passenger side door lock. Two issues:

1. The upper Torx bolt is stripped. I have a starpointed tool, but it seems like the previous owner stripped it. How do I get it removed?

2. Assuming I get it removed, I will have to get a new bolt. Besides going to the dealer, is there another source I can purchase a new / used one from?

Thank you

Use this metal drill so the bolt head loosens. it won't damage the doorlock thread.
