Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
This website does not work correctly with ipads, it can only be viewed properly on a PC. Can you get to a computer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No! One video showed a button to release the cable, then turn the wheel to port. The other mentioned about taking bolts out. Is there anything I can tell u or look for to give u an idea of what I have?
