Need some help!

I am installing rock guards right now and my passenger side went on with no problems but on the drivers side I can not get the middle body lift bolt to go back in. I can get the two outside ones but for some odd reason I can not get the one in the middle to line up. Can anyone recommend anything to try to line that one bolt back up? I am going crazy over this one.

Drill out the hole a little bigger.

Maybe loosen the other bolts but don't take them all the way out and then see if you can get that last bolt in the tighten them all down. Hope this helps,I could be completely wrong

^^^ This and at the same time use a phillips screwdriver or some kind of alignment tool to help align the hole. Also clean up the threads on the bolt and make sure that they are not dinged up preventing it from starting.
