It took me one hour to do mine. I got the Thrasher kit. If you follow the directions, step-by-step, it is a piece of cake. I too had never been inside a transmission.
If anybody wants some moral support, I am happy to talk you through the installation on the phone. Just PM me and set up a time when you will be doing it and LET'* GO!
1) drop pan/drain fluid
2) remove seven (as I recall) screws and take out the accumulator
3) replace springs, seals in accumulator, add spacers
4) reassemble with new gasket and filter (supplied in Thrasher Kit)
5) replace pan and fluid
THE MOST rewarding hour I've spent working in the Bonnie! Great BANG for the BUCK (and time).
