HELPPPP Stripped Windsheild

The top bolt of my hinge for my windsheild (1995 YJ) is stripped. Not the torx bolt rather the nut that is INSIDE the windsheild frame. Is there anyting i can do to fix the threads or fix my windsheild WITHOUT ripping apart the metal on the windsheild.

Yes you can install a time sert. As long as the nut is still fastened to window frame
