    rear deck height adjustment not moveable on Honda HR215 lawnmower

    I have a Honda HR215SXC self propelled , rear bag lawn mower . I used that lawnmower for 2 years for mulching with a mulching plug in the rear bag chute . I had the deck height setting at the lowest setting to the ground . Now I can not adjust the rear deck height setting at all . The adjustment seems to be frozen in place . I have been spraying the adjustment links with Penetrating Oil to maybe loosen it up with no luck so far . My Honda dealer has no time to look at the mower , he is too busy , but told me to drop the whole rear drive axle and adjustment to see what is maybe rusted and frozen up and spray that parts with the Penetrating Oil . I only have the Owners Manual but no repair manual to see how to take that back end with the height adjuster apart .
    Can you advise me ?

    That's a Canada-market model, but the USA version is usually the same (mechanically). Here's a page from the shop manual that might help. Pay attention to the pawl assembly, and do one at a time. Apply general-purpose grease where indicated...

    Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding was my opinion alone.
