Hello Customer,

Shift solenoids are pretty easy to do. You have to remove the bottom transmission pan to get to it. So you may want to pick up a new gasket and filter and fluid. I Think you have to pull the crossover bar off to get the pan down on these old blazers. Once the pan is down, Remove the filter and you can see the 3-2 shift solenoids in the front. There is a clip in the valve body to pull to get the solenoid out. Pull the solenoid out slowly, there is a valve that can spring out if you yank it out fast. Here is a picture of the solenoids. Let me know if you don't under stand something or run into a problem.

If you do have to pull the crossover bar off to get to the transmission pan, is that fairly easy to remove as well?

Its not too bad, You have to place a jack under the transfer case and jack it up a little and hold it while the crossover brace is removed. If there is a lot of rust, the bolts may give you a fit coming loose.
