What now?

Also clean iac tps is about two yrs but it was brand new.
Just cause a part was new 2 years ago doesn't mean it won't fail. Especially if it was an AutoZone special. But those parts can be tested. Refer to your Haynes or Chilton manual for the procedure.
Once the plenum is off you should be able to extract the bolt fairly easy. Maybe a pic of it will help give you the best technique. If you have enough bolt use vice grips. If not either a left handed drill bit or easy out should do the trick. Before you mess with it soak it in penetrating oil for a while.
