On the lower unit you have a side plate to undo the gear connection.It may be near the upper housing.Then you have the g/box nuts.Undo all of these.Now all of these are off,the lower unit will drop.If not,a rubber mallet softly around the sides of the lower casing.The g/box nuts are below or near the flat cavitation plate.Not the ones near the propeller.Lower it gently and watch where the water pump tube goes.Whilst the g/box is off,I would do the water pump.Its 4 bolts and takes about 20 minutes.The parts are cheap and worth doing while the box is off.Make sure a high temp grease goes on the top of the driveshaft before it geos back in.Hope this helps

15 hp yamaha not shifting stuck in gear

First, check the linkage under the motor cover. It stoops you from given the engine too much throttle when the motor is in neutral but can jam the system if you try to shift out of gear at too fast of speed. Or a link in that system could be broken/loose. If all looks OK the check your lower unit oil. If none or water, the gear case could be trash.
