1. Look for a youtube video.
2, Purchase a repair manual online and have it shipped to the house. Read the manual.
3. Buy the new part from Rock Auto and ask them for a instruction sheet dealing with R & R.
4. If you already have a used part in hand, examine it closely and try to figure out how it attaches.
5. Don't be a 'hammer mechanic'. If need be take it to a reputable shop and let them do the R & R.
6. Good Luck!
