slide out question

I just purchased an 8317SS with a slide but cant figure out how to manually operate the slide without power. Where is the drive unit hiding? Thanks

most slides have a place to crank the slide in/out when there's no power.
ours came with a manual crank that attaches to the motor.
our is under the sofa.

I have a crank handle that I think will do the job. Is the motor above or below the floor

My manual crank where you insert the crank handle is located under the steps.
