1290 sdr mirrors

Postby alpine* » Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:32 pm

Hi

Anyone know if it's possible to remove the mirror head from the stalk, I have tried to undo the torx screw but the screw will not undo. If I apply anymore force I'll snap the torx tool.
Does it undo?
Thanks.

Yes, it will undo. I used a torx socket that came as a set from Craftsman tools.

Thanks mr_et, managed to do it now. It had threadlock on so applied heat from a hairdryer then it undone. If anyone else is interested and would like to make the mirror adjust easily without jerking don't use grease or silicone but clean the surfaces of the ball joint and apply graphite powder ( I used a pencil lead ground down with sandpaper ), Silky smooth movement now.
