Help with Gear Shift Splined Shaft

Hello, and thanks ahead of time for any help. I have a 2005 Foreman manual shift. The splined shaft for the foot shifter took a hit and the button on the end broke off inside the gearbox. The shaft slid out. I have bought a new splined shaft and oil seal. but have no idea how to proceed to replace it. I'm not much of a gear head but I can follow instructions ( rebuilt a 2006 ford powerstroke using a Chiltons manual and its running like a champ) Is it possible for me to replace this shaft in my shop with basic tools? and is there a Chiltons type manual for the foreman? Any help would be great. Thanks

I found an online manual. Is it possible to get the cover open and access the retaining bolt without pulling the engine?

yes but you will need to pull off the rear swingarm to get to the shifter shaft

Thanks, I just got back in from the shop. Got the swingarm separated and on blocks. Had to call it quits until saturday. Looks like I have easy access to the bolts on the rear cover. Any tricks I need to know before i go any further? Thanks again so much for the help!

Try not to pull the shift shaft (the one that goes through the motor to the front) out too far or the washers might fall and you'll have to pull the front cover off.
