Mirror Relocator removal

So the PO put on the mirror relocators on. There all rusted and nastified and i wana paint em. My problem is, that when i go to take the torx bolts out of the relocator, it jsut spins and doesnt come out. None of them do. Any ideas? do i have to remove the dash and hold the nut with a wrench

Yep, sure do, 7/16 if I remeber right.
I can get to the passengers side of mine by taking the door off and getting down on my knee's like I am praying to the jeep God.
Drivers side I have to take it apart regardless of how hard I pray

I didn't have to, and I think it might depend on if dash speakers are in the way or any other items. For me, I did not have to do anything as far as removing things or disassembling the dash.

Yep - from the factory you may have a nut up inside plastered with sealant, loctite AND a nylock nut. I did.

I ended up drilling them out. MUCH easier that trying to remove them. Then I replaced them with appropriate grade hardware bolts etc.

Never thought about that , I guess the speakers are the nuckle buster on mine. I may consider removing them when my sound bar arrives.
Once the relocator brackets are on though, no worries, I'll be able to move the mirrors back and forth with out anything more than a phillips .
