2 AUTOPILOT (if engaged) - DISENGAGE
Do not re-engage the autopilot. Control airplane pitch attitude manually with control column and main electric trim as needed

If the Runaway Continues
3 STAB TRIM CUTOUT SWITCHES (both) - CUTOUT


If the Runaway Continues
4 STABILIZER TRIM WHEEL - GRASP and HOLD

Number two item above demonstrates this list does not apply to MCAS.

Auto Pilot is OFF already, MCAS is only active in manual.
