It could be the bolt that stripped or the trans housing. Do you know which it was? I ask because if it is the transmission housing, it needs to be tapped with new threads for a larger bolt. If it is the bolt that is bad, you should be able to replace it.
Chances are it is the transmission housing that stripped. Aluminum isn't very strong.
If that is the case, here is something easy to try rather than trying to tap new threads. Take the bolt to a hardware store and ask them for the next larger size bolt in a self-tapping bolt. Try to get the same length and only slightly larger. Once you have that, make sure it is straight and simply screw it in. It may require a little more effort because it will be cutting new threads, but take your time and you'll be fine. Also, if you spray it with something like WD40, it will go in easier.
Let me know if that helps.
