Code is 0983
Looks like you need to drop the transmission pan to get at those solenoids. You'd need to drain and flush your transmission fluid after, but I would think from draining and flushing my own transmission that it would be a relatively simple unscrew/replace the affected solenoid, then bolt the pan back on and refill the transmission with new Toyota WS fluid. Unless I'm missing something it isn't terrible to do, probably take an hour.

As far as testing the solenoid itself to verify I'm not certain, I'd just trust the code to tell me which one was the defective one. There are harnesses connected to each so while you're in there you could make sure they're properly secure.
