Replacing velvac mirro head

I need to replace the passenger mirror head on my MH. I bought the replacement from velvac, and the instructions are pretty straight forward: remove the set screw holding the mirror, pull mirror out, disconnect from harness, connect new mirror, drop into place on the arm, replace the set screw and adjust the viewing angle.

I have loosened the set screw, but I cannot remove it from the arm and I cannot lift the mirror head from the arm. Anybody done this successfully?

I think you might need to loosen the set screw some more, or even remove it completely. Then you might want to eat some more Wheaties and try again as it will come off.

Mine was a real pain to remove as well. Loosened, fiddled, yanked, and what-all and it finally popped loose.

Turns out that my inability to get the set screw out was due to stripped threads in the arm. I ended up having to drill out the pivot clamp in order to remove the mirror and screw. I re-threaded the arm, but it was boogered up so much that I had to go with a longer screw to get everything tight.
