I'm going to replace my trim seals for the first time tomorrow morning. I got the seals and spanner wrench by mail today. Any words of wisdom from anyone that has done it before? My motor is a 1999 Yamaha 115 2 stroke. (C115TLRX)

Raise motor all the way up to release pressure in system. Easy from there.

I used a 2 X 6 board (cut to length needed to support the motor) with a V notch and rested the motor in that while I worked on the trim unit.

Should have a built in lock to keep motor up.

Woohoo! Got the caps off clean without damaging them at all. Not even a scratch. It was a pain in the a$$ to get the old seals out but I got the new ones in pretty easy. Refilled and bled the fluid and it works perfectly!
