Strut tower question

When I was putting my strut bar on my Rio I snapped off one of the threaded studs on the top of the strut tower when tightening the strut bar down. Is this something that needs to be fixed right off or can a drive it for a while like this? Its on the passenger side.

Id take the bar off and say you noticed it like this. Worst case they will blame it on you or they will just fix it. It could be a problem. I would not take the chance of breaking all of them from the more load they are gonna take because of the one broken.
