If you never did this before , I strongly advise take it to a local shop....if you don't seal it correctly, you will end up buying a new one for water getting in.... I fix alot of things on my boat but not the trolling motor....your choice....GL

Here are instructions to handle this:
First remove the prop nut. Then remove the prop. Once you remove the prop you will see two screws on the motor head like 5/16 screws approx. Remove those two screws. Once you remove those two screws you grab a hold of the back part of the motor and twist it off. When that is removed grab a hold of the shaft and gently pull out. Once you have removed the shaft look inside the housing and you will see two brushes inside. Unplug the brushes from the brush housing.
Use a dental pik to remove the real seals and then replacement should be self explanatory
You can get a tech manual from Mikes Reel repair. You can also get schematics, replacement parts and instructions (how to) do anything you want (all for free) from their website. This is a great place for Minn Kota assistance if you are doing the work yourself.
Here is a link to their website:
If you tell me what year the motor is, I can send you what you need? Use the comment or reply link next to your original question posted on Fixya to send me that information and I will send you instructions on the bolts that you have questions on and other relevant information

I have to say that this should be your first response to the problem.
As for fixing, you need to make the decision if what the repair cost would be and shipping over a new unit, due to how much use and it's age. Warranty.
