If you have never done one, let a shop do it as so much can go worng with this repair.

If there is any fragment that fall into the motr, the motr can be severely damaged

When you remove the unit. Look for fragments in the intake. If there are, you will have to remove the intake to get them all out and whatever made it to the intake valves
