    So tell me, you are not running your car with that module with no nut on it as shown in your last photo?

    NOPE
    I repaired the stud with the Tool called tap and die, and the bolt fits right in. It wasnt that hard. Also I didnt have to take out the battery. Just took out part of the harness and BOOM. Now the car drives fine and suprisingly without any fault code. Perhaps until the next module.

    That is good to hear.

    Believe me we have seen it all here, so I had to ask, even if only to make it obvious.

    Thank you for sharing your error.
    It is a warning to others.

    I can say it til I'm blue in the face to use an inch pound torque wrench but a real life story of the results of not doing this is a better illustration.
