Throttle body stop screw - Adjustable?

My focus 1.6 petrol sticks on the lowest gas pedal position. I know its the butterfly sticking. Throttle stop screw is worn a little. So i put 3 layers of electrical tape together and laid it between the stop screw and the stop plate. And that was enough to fix the problem. But this tape will get worn so i have to fix it more permanently.

Does anybody know if the stop screw can be turned? When i feel the backside of the screw i fell that the screw has a round head without the possibility to put a screwdriver into it.
