I gotta ask-- why do this if you're "not a car guy"? I assume you are replacing either the tranny itself or one of the pistons? How much will you save in labor by doing the drop and replace yourself, over the cost of parts? Is it worth the risk of screwing it up (now you gotta do it again)? That and the potential safety issues--trannys are kinda heavy, and you might get hurt if you've never seen/done this job before.

Do a search of the archives here, there might even be a pictorial account....

Sounds like you may not have had to pull it. You might want to read the attached link to see if your symptoms are the same as in the link. Good news is since you have the trans out you can pop the b2 piston cover of and look to see if you have had a catastrophic failure of the piston. It will only take seconds to check.

edit: forgot this site does not like the link. replace asterisk with mbzdotorg
