  • Trying to replace shift cable mercury optimax

    The shift cable on my 225 optimax broke. It is attached at the engine side but when I remove the nut holding it in place and pull on the cable it pulls out so I am assuming it broke at the throttle box. My problem is trying to get the box out. I \saw some videos on removing the handle on other models and I gathered from those that I have to remove the neutral button to access the screw or bolt holding the handle on. But in those videos they show a slot for a set screw and a slot on the button for a screwdriver. I don't have either of those. Do I just pry that button out?
