Selectric I and II type elements are identical (88 char) where Selectric III uses a different element (96 char). The 88 character element will have white lettering and the 96 character element will have yellow. Directly underneath the lift-up tab to remove the element will be a 3-digit number. That's the last 3 digits of the element's part number, which will be preceeded by 1167 for 88 character, or 1352 or 96 character. For example, if you have a '052" stamped on the element, and it's an 88 character style, the P/N will be 1167052.
The correcting mechanism is an intricate additional function of the backspace function. To test it/adjust it/or repair it requires the machine be hand-cycled using a hand cycle wheel which is screwed into the right hand side operational shaft. It's unlikely that an un-trained party would be successful repairing this..

Pull the orange lever located on the carrier to the side. Make sure the ribbon passes through the ribbon lift guide next to the platen. The ribbon should go behind the the thick part of the guide and through the fingers to the inside on the outside of the guide. There is a wire (usually with a white platice roller on it) sticking up from the carrier. Maker sure the ribbon goes aroung the outside of the wire. Snap the ribbon down on the carrier then close the orange lever back in place.

Sounds like the cable might have slipped off the pulley, with the cover off, check all cables to the carriage assy. You need a tool like a spring hook to gently slide the cable back on to the pulley.
