The park pawl is back in the rear, so if there was a split it would have to be at the rear end, from all I find, the shaft with the pawl, can slip back and allow the new pawl to be installed.

You still need to split the rear axle from the transmission, correct.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

I don't think so. I don't have a manual, but it looks do able.
