OEM roof rack problems

Some how the passenger side thread is gone off my roof rack. Noticed when i was driving and it was making a awful rattling. How can i go about fixing that? The roof rack is still secure just the cross bar has nothing to screw it down to.

Yeah i still have the bolt but the nut or thread part in the base is gone. Some I'm thinking it's some how still in the base some where. It really can't fall out.

Yeah. I was trying to avoid doing that. But it is what it is. I was just hoping for a better solution

You could try to find a new bolt that is the same length just larger girth and re-tap the area that it screws into. Another option would be to find a nut that it the same threading as the bolt and JB Weld it into place.

Do you have any pics, that might help us think of ideas to repair it.
