Try and use an easy out. Get the fluted square ones and not the conical ones.

are you talking collector bolt? If that is the case +rep for you... those bolts dont like coming off but to get it to break when they typically spin you must be ripped.

If it is the collector you will probably be ok till you can get a replacement, but a replacement is suggested asap...

You will be fine running just one bolt in there until you can get a replacement. That bolt you should be able to get at any hardware store.
