Air bag (Suspension) inlet leak

Hello veteran BMW users, as a new guy with BMWs I am experiencing new problems every week, thanks to God there are forums such as this.

My self leveling system has been suffering with a leak, I discovered the leak on front left air strut inlet. Took it out and replaced the o-ring with another one. But discovered the threads on plastic inlet are stripped. After one day used it started to leak again.
It better be replaced. I sent an email to Arnott about the leak but did not have a response yet from them.

Is there anyone here had a leak on entrance and replaced just that part?
I also thought to use glue / locktite red etc. But did not perform anything before asking to this forum.

I am open for ideas.

PS: I have a used old front right strut if compatible I want to replace the inlet with old one.

Thanks to everyone who read my post
