Can somebody direct me to the How to's?

Hey Guys...New to the forum (formally a Civic guy...dont flame). Just picked up my first Jeep yesterday....a 99 4cly stick to contrast with my company car. Couple things are bad that i know of and i need direction to "how to's" to replace them.

1) Rear Wheel Cylinders & Parking Brake (probably need to do the drums too)...also cheapest place to pick up parts.
2) Rear lug - completely snapped off.
3) Soft Top - Instructional to install a besttop.

Few things that arent working:
Fan Controller - Nothing works...i dial the fan speed nothing happens...fan direction (feet, defroster, etc) nothing happens. I searched and resister came up...is that the fix?
Hard top drainage nipple - where the hell does it drain into...currently into my busted softtop.

Thanks in advance guys...i drove the jeep with the top off today in NY with no heat...so much fun!

There are a few sources you can use outside of the forum for repairs.
1) a factory service manual.
2) a chilton or haynes repair manual.

I usually get my auto parts from autozone. Some swear by them, and others curse them. Me personally have had only one problem with a clutch master cylinder that was fixed. I always went there for the military discount.

In the forum I'm not sure there is a how-to for wheel cylinders. A good tip is to do them one at a time so if you screw one up you can look at the other to see how it is supposed to go. Lug studs are pressed in. The old one will need to be driven out with a punch or chisel and a hammer and the new one pressed, pounded, or pulled in.

Bestop instructions could be gotten at their website. -->Click Here<--
