I was finally able to remove the mirror adjustment sockets from the horizon mirror frame.
However, it doesn't matter how much liquid wrench or wd40 I applied to the socket, or the amount of heat with my heat gun, I wasn't able to move the screw inside the socket. So if you have another socket then I would just buy it from you. Else I think I will just drill out the screw and replace it with another.

Hi Ridge,I need two mirrror adjusting tools only. Over the weekend I visited my friend who has a CPlath mirror adjustment tool. I was able to use it to adjust the index mirror. However I could not use it to adjust the horizon mirror. The reason was that the square head nut on the horizon mirror sunk a little too deep so that the tool wasn't able to grab it. Did you ever run into a problem like this before?Here is some pictures of the mirror tool that my friend has.
