Cross threaded screw on Outer Fairing-Advise?
Ok I'm far from an expert so cut me a break if I use incorrect terminology. So I removed the outer fairing and while reinstalling, I cross threaded one of the lower fairing screws. It is one of the screws that hold on the lower air deflectors (I believe HD calls them "Willy Wings"). It is on there (but cross threaded) so I don't want to drill the screw out until I have the replacement parts.
Here's my question: Is the part that the screw goes into replaceable or would it have to be repaired? Again, the fairing is on so I can't see if the "screw hole" is a part of the fairing or if it is something that can be removed and replaced.
I case my description isn't clear, I have included a picture. It is the top lower fairing screw. Thanks
