Thinroy THANK YOU! I am a visual person and this picture helped out immensely. As i mentioned before i had noticed some corrosion and that thing was LOCKED UP. So naturally i thought maybe i was an idiot and it didnt come apart there after i was applying alot of force there. After seeing the pic i took off my passenger side (that had a boot) and it came right off.

thanks again for your help.

scavanau Me too... I had stripped and repainted mine a few times before I stopped and actually looked at how they went together.

BLK00TJ Son of a gun. I wish I had known that before I painted mine. It wasn't easy to mask off the boot.

Thanks in advance. I hope it just something simple that i am missing.
The mirror unscrews from the arm. If corroded, it may not be easy but they do unscrew. If you look closely, you'll notice "flats" for a wrench on the post that is screwed into the arm. There's loctite in there as well.

I just put 2 new BestTop mirrors on this week. I took my old mirrors completely apart and cleaned/repainted for spare parts. Go to a junkyard and buy a smashed mirror. Salvage the boot.
