Stripped torx in the sunroof motor - advice please!

Hi all, well, this summer my sunroof gave the proverbial CRUNCH! and wasn't retracting quite right.

I went for the quick fix - ordered the 'slide' parts for the sun-shade. But, mine were not broken. Found out the spiral coil is bunching. So, my cassette is cracked somewhere. No worries, I'll pull the headliner in the spring, and see if I can't fibreglass the cartridge back to snuff.

BUT - in all my frantic efforts, I stripped the manual adjust torx head in the sunroof motor. It's a very soft metal. Grrr....

I need help! The motor is fine! Anyone know if I can get a replacement torx bolt for the motor (fat chance I think....). Or, for the tool/die types, can I re-tap the stripped torx head?

Help please!!

Many thanks in advance!
