Removing Power Mirror Switch

Having trouble removing power mirror switch, looks like a pin hollds it in. The pin is not interested in coming out. Anybody have any suggestions?

Not a pin, it's a small allen head set screw.

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

Thanks, apparently after 2 years the set screw is bonded to the brass insert. Going to have to drill it.

This is a large difference in scale, but:
LAst month I had to get the shaft pulley off my table saw, but the set screw was seized on the woodruf key to the point I would either break the allen wrench in the head - or round off the hex. No access for a mapp torch. I didn't want to diassemble the whole dam saw so on a lark I got a rotohammer set to 'chisel' and just let the bit rest on the shaft. 15 minutes of steady torque plus PBBlaster shook it loose.



Don't know the accessibility but maybe some dissolver and oscillating dremel vibrating everything?
