How do you remove the bolt on an MMr that attaches to the hinge? I can get the bolt out on the outside of the machine, but cannot remove the part on the inside that you stick the Allen Wrench into. I'm at my wits end and I know it's gotta be something simple. 1 minute video with explanation below. Any help greatly appreciated.

Same issue on both sides.

It’s likely tapered in the hole. Get a bigger hex wrench and tap it out. This is one reason I get my blades from cointaker as they have holes in the mirror blades to avoid having to take out the hinge bolts.

It worked! Thanks! Had to use wd-40 and be much rougher than I would like but it worked.
