    Federico,
    After you remove the washer you might reinsert the pivot screw  and turn it
    all the way in until it either bottoms out or the head is flush with the
    index arm pivot. There will be a small gap between the underside of the
    head and the female part of the pivot assembly. Then apply a light tap to
    the screw head. When the tapered pivot separates remove the screw and
    remove the arm. Less chance for damage to the thread that way.
    
    Good luck. Fingers Crossed.
    Philip
