If all you want to do is take the screens off and clean behind them, after you remove the screw/s, use a pick to pull the screens out if they don't just fall out.

If you want to really get silly with the cleaning, drop the lower unit, remove water pump assembly and pour CLR in the water suction holes and let it drain down and out.

Of course using the flush port on the side of the motor back flushes the cooling water system without dropping the lower unit.

Ok i got the thick plastic screen off and all was clean as a whistle. I forgot we sent the lower unit out for a $1,500 rebuild 2-3 years ago. Ok I'm a little OCD or ADD
