    if I haven't misunderstood, the washer is the cylindrical piece just under
    the picot screw, isn't it? There's a narrow gap between it and the pivot
    housing, do I have to pry it up (with a knife or so)?

    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.
