Stripped throttle position sensor hole, what to do?

My TPS has held securely, but the bottom hole is stripped. I can rotate the screw to where it gets tight, then it becomes loose, then tight, so-on and so-on. So, I rotate it to just before it becomes loose in an effort to secure the TPS as much as possible. Haven't had any issues. However, I would like to fix the issue so I don't have any problems down the line. Is it possible to run a tap through the hole? As I recall, the screws are a weird size. I'm new to using taps, would I need to remove the throttle body and drill a hole, then run a tap through? Which size would be best? Maybe an M5? I know that is slightly bigger than the TPS screws.
