I would think you could use a Helicoil on something like that.

A Helicoil would be OK there, but you'll need to go at it from inside the fenderwell. Move anything necessary in the engine comartment, put the front end on jackstands, and remove the wheel/tire and fenderwell liner.

I believe your engine uses metric threads, so check first........
