Question Input shaft nut step-by-step procedure

Hi all, First thanks in advance for your assistance! My first time to the forum and I have the infamous input shaft nut problem on my 95 SC2 with 110K. I have searched the forum for threads with a step-by-step procedure for this to little success. I found TedL's thread which is a help for parts and actually torquing the nut but I'm looking for the procedure for removing the cover to access the input shaft.(which I understand is tricky) I found the whole procedure on Turbosaturns.net Forum a few weeks ago but for some reason the forum has been down for several days. I know the left spindle and fender well need to come off but I dont want to screw anything up getting the cover off. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks but that is manual transaxle removal. I just need to take the end cover off of the auto transaxle.

Anybody else ??
