    I removed the bolt after applying some vinegar, but still I can't move the dish vertically, do I need to remove anything else?

    Vinegar can remove oxidation, but will reproduce it twice as fast. You need to spray it with WD-40 or similar penetrating lube to free it up.
    Acids can clean metals but at the same time leave them exposed to all other oxidants.

    Yeah, really. Can you take a wide view shot so we can see the entire backing structure, please?

    Use WD-40 spray on the rusted screws and then use all your strength to turn it.

    If you snap off the nut, you can replace it with a fresh one.
