Those screws (in other places on other Toyotas)- I've removed by drilling the center and teasing out the threads. And cleaning up to the point that another identical screw will thread in. But it is a stunt. Shortcut is to drill out and use strong twist on a big screwdriver to install a short pan head screw w/ deep sharp threads and a big head w/ a wide slot.
Yep, best way to repair is to drill/easy-out it. Or drill, then chip off the threads left and clean up.
It really sucks when an easy out breaks off in a broken bolt, that really really makes the day go to hell.
