I would think so but I would remove everything that isn't necessary. But I would hurry and replace it asap.

So, essentially you can't tighten the bolt, but there's a connection?

If that's the case, you can do it. Kind of a hazard... but, it should work for a while. It's going to put a big strain / bottleneck on your electrical system if it's not making a nice solid connection.
