The rubber bung is fine, no need to remove it...but the bolt is pretty bent.
The bolt needs to be replaced, but it's tough to get it out of there.
The plastic (or rubber) will have expanded due to it being compressed by the tightening of the bolt. Seeing as the bolt is bent, the bung is in its expanded state and is semi stuck in the stub.
Push the bolt as far back into the stub as you can and gently remove the bung.
To be clear. In assembly, the rubber bung with screw inserted is loosely screwed
in the arm then the stub is slipped over it then tightened up. You need to reverse the process. This means you can pull the bung out from the visible side, it will not go through the other way.
