Yes, the Bentley has a very good description, but this is probably 
the hardest thing on the car to tackle. I've never taken one apart, 
but I'm sure it can be done. I don't know about parts, but an AT 
repair shop can probably get you anything you might need.

Those are probably just the part #s for the housings.

The earliest ATs had a different kind of side cover, which is more of 
a problem to deal with. Stick with the later style if you can. The 
Bentley manual has good descriptions of the various differences, 
and there are several. Some parts should not be mixed between
