front diff actuator

Was traveling over the mountain pass and lost my 4x4, Toyota shop checked it out, said the front differential actuator was bad as well as a detection switch. When they disconnected the actuator the 4wd worked so its not mechanical but electrical. They want $950 to fix it, If I find a used one is it difficult to do myself ? I'm pretty mechanical, its a 2001-6cyl. Thanks
