I'm guessing your down to drilling the rest of it out and using a Timesert (better than a Helicoil). I do have to say that I had a stripped trans bolt as well and used a Helicoil to fix it years ago. I also use a little blue Loctite on the bolt to help keep it in there.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm guessing a helicoil or similar will not be suitable for this carrier bolt.
