Had the same problem, stainless steel bolts in aluminium housing.
Was advised to use Tef-Gel: TEF-GEL - Ultra safety systems - Home page
Better than copper grease or any other.

re my answer when you re-fit parts use a marine grease on the threads they will be able to be removed and refitted many times, i didnt have a problem with any H.M.C.G. obms over the years with siezed bolys /screws or fixings, ask any dealer of any make obm, dont use copper grease as copper is a conducter of electric and that will cause problems will your casings, stainless steel fixings only.

ref your picture turn the small moulded square 90 degrees upward and pull out , if you look at the shift rod that runs down the back of the leg you will see a lump of plastic that is held together with an eight mm nut and bolt ,remove plastic with all other parts you undone remove g/housing

Honda use chrome plated steel which overcomes the corrosion problem to some extent, but still causes eventual problems if you don't regularly remove and grease them. Being softer also makes them harder to remove without shearing although the upside is they are easier to drill out. Stated from experience
