1985 4000S Quattro question

My 1985 4000S Quattro is having electrical problems, and I'm currently in the process of troubleshooting the various possible causes. Have a sneaking suspiscion it might be the voltage regulator, though, and my father, who knows a lot more about cars than I, concurs.

What I was wondering is if anyone has a copy of the Chilton's guide for that car who might be able to give me a general idea of what all goes into replacing the voltage regultor on that car. No need for great detail -- I probably should get a shop manual myself anyways -- I just want to have an idea of how much time, effort, and expertise goes into such a repair in what I've found is, even with all its strengths as a car, a bit of a pain to work on (as anyone will know who has tried to replace even an air filter in a mid-80s Quattro).

Thanks in advance.
