97 wrangler 2.5 4cyl no 5th gear

OK. The woman said she was going about 50mph in 5th and it made a noise, then just revved like the clutch was pushed in. It didn't pop out of 5th gear. All the other gears are fine. It has @130k on it. Fluid has been changed regularly. Can I just buy the $50 rebuild kit at Parts America and do a rebuild, or does it seem like I'm going to have to find what part broke and replace that? Any idea what part controls the 5th gear?

Snap ring?

Usually we find the snap ring has come off the shaft that retains fifth gear.

Sounds easy enough. I hear this tranny is a pain. I should be able to just open it up and look for what's broken, or will I have to do some dissassembly? I have been working on cars for some time so I am by no means a novice. Just never done a jeep. I'm going onto ebay for a real shop manual. Thanks for the help.
