Need help from Transmission Gurus
A friend of mine bought an '85 Wagon. He trailered the Jeep home, and along the way a strap broke, and the Jeep came off the trailer. Luckily, there was no body hurt or property damaged but the Jeep did get some damage. I've fixed everything I could fix for him but there's one item I just know nothing about. When the Jeep came off the trailer and the wheels hit the road, the park mechanism in the transmission (parking pawl I believe it's called) was damaged. The truck has no park what so ever. Its like the transmission is in neutral and could be dangerous if he forgets to set the emergency brake while going into a store or something. My question is: Can the park mechanism in the tranny be replaced without disassembling the whole transmission? I would hate for him to have to pay someone to take the whole transmission apart just to replace one tiny part. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
