It's all pretty basic. The only real critical thing is marking the compressor wheel, top nut and shaft so that you get them all lined up again properly to keep the unit in balance. I usually use a razor blade to put a small score in all three to line them back up on reassembly. Some people use a sharpie or a paint line, but I've had issues where I've cleaned them away when cleaning up the parts. There are a few written tutorials on line and some videos on youtube. You have a Garrett T3 turbo (if it's the original from your car). Lots of other cars had the same turbo, so you may find tutorials for rebuilding Buick turbos, or Honda turbos or Mopar turbos, etc. they are all the same if they are Garrett T3s.
