Most of these you have to take off the cover on the back end where the cover retrack button is. Usually it has a catch, 2 on each side, use a screw driver, pry up near each corner to release it, then you can get to the cover over the moter and cord reel. Remove the 2 screw and put up and out.

Found 2 screws on front end of the rear deck cover. Only able to lift front edge slightly. Exploded view shows at least 1 more screw under the retrack cover (to fully release?). Tried to pry up on cover but was concerned plastic would break. I'm getting closer to my goal. Any final thoughts?
