Rolls away in park

I have a 2000 Explorer 4x4. Last week, I parked in a friends up hill driveway, and the truck rolled backwards when I took my foot off the brake. As it rolled, I could hear the parking paul clicking, but not engaging. First item on the agenda is to repair the parking brake! Next thing is to repair the parking paul. Any ideas on how to do this? Do I have to remove the transmission, or is it like the A4LD and located in the tail shaft? I have not really crawled under the truck yet to see which transmission is in it. How involved is this going to be?
Thanks!

First check the bracket under the dash that holds the selector cable in place. They are bad to have the bolts become loose of completely fall out, thus not allowing the selector to completely engage the pawl. Assuming the 2000 Explorer has the 5R55E transmission here are the photos of the pawl/tail housing. Not a bad job at all.

Okay, doing a little research I find these are your transmission choices, see your door tag to determine which you have.
Transmission Codes

D — Five-speed automatic overdrive, A5LDE
M — Five-speed manual, Mazda
U — Four-speed automatic overdrive, 4R70W

The A5LDE is as pictured and I believe the 4R70W is like that also.

Great pictures Steve! Looks very similar to the A4LD. Guess I will have to remove the transfer case and tail shaft to get at the pawl. (yippie!) Maybe it is the under dash bracket as you suggested, and I will get off easy! Thanks
