Stripped wheel lug fix?

I had to take off my wheels for maitenance and when I put them back on I stripped one of the wheel lug inserts. I chased it with a 14m x 1.25 tap, but to no avail. Anyone know what is involved in fixing this? The insert or hole doesn't look like it is attached to the rotor, but rather attached to the protector plate. Anyone know??

Unfortunately, this is not as easy as chasing the crapped threads with a tap. I've dealth with this before (not my car), but on an e46 chassis. Fortunately, it's very similar, even with the front half-shaft.

It's a little bit of work, but doable if you're patient, and have access to an air gun or something with that produces an large amount of torque. I would order the lock nut in advance, since it's a one-time use only part. (part #33 41 1 133 785)

Here are the instructions from BMW:

Thanks Harold, Are you saying it's part of the wheel bearing?
