Post subject:  Stripped Plastic Thread Help

Hi all,

Looking for some help. The airbox on my Focus has had almost all of the threads stripped by previous owners doing the screws up too much.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this at all?

You could try bigger screws.

Was thinking of trying some epoxy resin in the holes

If the plastic is thick enough, maybe you could drill it out a bit larger and put metal thread inserts in?
