:( Can the mirror be removed from the mirror stalk ? It would make installing the 4 bolts so much easier if I could put the rubber down over the stalk after mounting the stalk. Old rubber is resisting bending enough to access the bolt holes.

hi.. just reread your question and will add this...
I would not take the mirror off the ball to install bolts ....new .boots I am not sure if you can put them on from the bolt end. but if you want to remove the ball end.........
first loosen the tension screw. I removed it.

what I had to do next is at your own risk ! I used a hair dryer to warm the area where the metal ball goes into the mirror, but not too much as to melt or deform it. then pull out......reverse to put on.

the heat may not be necessary but I could not pull it out cold.....
just a ball and socket

Couple of tips:

- Try heating the boots gently with a hair dryer. That may soften them up a bit.

- Once you have the mirrors off, try spraying or brushing the boots with a silicone-based lubricant and let it soak in.
