Strut Mount Bolt

Was tightening my strut mount bolts and one snapped off like a twig. Can I drive around with just 3 or do I have to replace the strut mount? I've read I can replace the bolt only and I've read that's a big no no.

Thanks

I do not think anyone can give you a answer to this question due to safety......

If it was my vehicle, I would not be afraid to drive it, but I would not drive it hard. But I would repair it immediately, or replace it if I could not repair it. But this is if it was my vehicle.....

Get that bad boy replaced. The piece of mind is worth the price. Better yet go for an upgrade.

I did it to my car.

It's been about 1 year
I haven't gotten around to replacing it, because when I do, it'll be along with many suspension components.

As far as safety.
I haven't died, and I do some pretty crazy stuff with my car.
So you're good Bro

Nice man good to hear! Common sense tells me that having 3 of 4 bolts connected would be fine. Only having 2 might be risky. I don't think it's moving any.
