My side mirror is coming loose. Not the base mounting to the body, but where the cone mounts to the base. The problem is that I used locktite on the screws and can't get the screw at the tip of the cone to come out. Any ideas other than wait for it to fall off and get a new one?

You can very CAREFULLY heat the head of the screw with a clean-tip soldering iron...you may have to leave the iron on the screw for a couple of minutes......You might want an extra person to then try backing out the screw( with as large a screwdriver as possible) as you turn the mirror in the opposite direction....Locktite almost always will release with heat application.
