I'm trying to get the arms off btw. I removed the bottom cap and can't see up inside tube. Are you saying there's an Allen up there or were your talking about the mirror head?

Just be careful, the last time I undid that screw I could not get the clasp on the inside to get close enough to the screw the allen screw back in. Ended up taking the plastic ring around the frame and taking the mirror off to get to the clasp. Good luck

I was talking about the mirror head.

I think you need to unbolt the arms from the door hinges. I've never tried taking the arms apart.

That makes sense but sucks. Those screws are brutal.

You really need a impact screwdriver with a Posi bit. These are screwdrivers that hit with a hammer.

Clay, if you want to take off the whole thing you have to remove the hinge. It screws in from the back of the hinge. Taking the hinge loose from the door side might be easier. You may have to take off the door card but then you can get to the bolts. Should be easier than trying to take the screws out of the bulkhead hinge side.

There is nothing to be gained by removing the hinge from the bulkhead. You need to undo it from the door to access the screws.

Thanks Gents. I'm going to remove the silly hinge.
