98 R129 SL500 hardtop softop bolt stripped HELP

HI, I did not have the tool (hardtop tool) to tighten the bolt (the one with the stern thread) which manually locks the hardtop softtop in the front. ...so I made a mistake and stripped the bolt. Now I am trying to replace this bolt, but I cannot find the part number...I tried EPC but I truly cannot find it.
Can anybody help me out with the part number ? ...may be I can buy a different bolt.
