Consideration of restoring pocket hole in main spar rib1 hole pattern

One of the rib 1 holes in the main spar is missing the required pocket behind the web. I am considering whether to unbolt the spars, form this pocket (about 1/4" diameter) in the interior web layers, then re-bolt.

The CAD image originates from TAF, and was obtained by Pascal Latten when he dealt with the same issue: he disassembled the spar and formed the pocket
