Exclamation Mirror Relocation

I recently took the doors off of my 2009 Sahara and got a rugged ridge relocation kit. Being the male that I am I decided to ignore the instructions and take the original mirrors off of the doors before I took off the mirror heads. I tried using the torx 40 to take off the mirror head but I cannot. I've sprayed it multiple times with PB Blaster and even attached it back onto the door but I cannot get the mirror head off. Any suggestions?

wooden dowel in the bottom, and a couple of taps with a hammer.
