It's designed to be serviceable, and the parts other than the lever itself are listed individually.  If the lever needs replacement, it's only available with everything else.  I've never rebuilt one, but if I had trouble with the screw, I'd heat the thing to begin with.

Nothing worse than a sticky hard to fold out lever. I have helped many a friend remove the screw ---- pull the lever up and watch the ball fall! Like GrayRacer says heat the Phillips head up and use a hammer impact.
