Actually it is a little more complicated than that.
What you have to do is take top and back plates off.
First thing I would do is take the hose of the drum where the water pump (drain) is connected and see if you are lucky to see the wire through that hole. If not yes than you will have to dismantel the whole machine and take the outer drum apart.
Take motor out and than split the outer drum. ( they are locked together with bolts.) I know it seems like a lot of work but I have done it before and it is very possible to do it. Make sure that if you disconnect wires to mark where they go. You can even take pictures to help you assemble it again.
If you are not to keen about it you can always ask a local tech to do this. It will void your warranty if you do it your self.
Sorry that is is not an easy fix.

I have a 1993 Dodge Dakota V8 4x4 with a 318. I dorped the truck into drive with the rpms at about 2500. A pop sound was made. Now it wont go into drive, 1st and 2ed. nothing even in 4L 4H. but will go...

First and foremost you must get any and all diagrams for the transmission so you know what you a taking apart. If this is your first time taking apart a transmission you will need to have as much knowledge about what you are about to undertake as you can get. Otherwise poor judgment will turn into a costly and time consuming event. After all that you can then start pulling things apart remembering that everything has to be kept clean. By all means do not use the old convertor and flush the oil cooler.

pull the drum off and check the shoes if there is plenty of shoes grab hold of each shoe in one hand each and slowly pull them apart there is a ratchet mechanism that will operate and lock the shoes at the next level after each click put the drum back on and and see how it feals you want it to just be grabbing not to firm, if it is to firm get a screw driver between the ratchet mechanism and reset it back a click our two,

You need a rear drum bearing kit. Go to any online parts source such as and do a search using your model # to see exact part and a reasonable price you look to spend on the part. I hope this helps you.

Power jack removal and installation

most laptops use a combination of screws and tab/slots clamping to keep the clam shell halves together. The tabs fit carefully into the mating slots, so it is up to you to find them. Carefully press in on the sides where the clam shell halves mate and find locations where it is more difficult to press inward. This area will be a place where to find a tab/slot mate.
