Mercruiser 3.0 Power tilt problem

My Mercruiser 3.0 (on a 1996 Bayliner) will lower just fine but a just get a "click" when I try to raise the motor. I've been told it is prbably the lift solenoid. Any chance on getting instructuons on identifying and replacing this solenoid

Try finding the hot wire from the motor to the solenoid(s) since your hearing a clicking it must be getting the power to it to engage it but not through it to the motor.
A solenoid is just a magnetic switch. It has power on one side and when energized it will let power pass through to the motor. Check for bad connections at the motor and off the solenoid. Good luck.
