If you have another car you can drive, Take the other half of the screw to the parts store.

Wrecker. Get the screw, or the whole outlet. Virtually any 3800 from ALOT of years. Probably cost you a dollar.

Then he'd need a new gasket again

The screw takes just a screwdriver and maybe a crescent wrench to remove.

It'd almost be worth it to grab a flashlight and find the sucker. It'* probably behind a heat shield or something.
