Hello. My name is Tan.

On the stbd side of the trim unit is the manual release screw # ***** Turn the screw CCW 3-4 turns then you should be able to raise the motor. Have a friend help it might be a little heavy and stiff.

The screw will be in a hole near the bottom of the stbd motor bracket. Large slotted head screw.

Post back with questions.

Thank you......Tan
