I had both the chiltons and Haynes manuals and they were not much help at all. The worst part of the whole job was getting the clip on and off at the linkage. Pretty much just have to do it by feel. I was pretty sure I had mine on but it seems to have disconnected and I'm going to have to try again.

This really is a job where you learn by doing—get as many pictures as you can, and take notes. I would not want to do this replacement any more than necessary.
