Others here or on the 200q20v list have reported running without that crossbrace in place.   I think I'd look for some really healthy stainless sheetmetal screws (like 1/4 inch) to replace drilled out nonfunctional studs.

on, about half of them gave their life upon removal and now there is no
hope of the crossmembers re-installation without using a drill and some
self tapper's or equivalent. What stresses (by not having it on) am I
putting on the car? Also any suggestions (other than self tapping
screws) for re-installation?
