v6 external gearbox boot replacement

Hi all

I have a bad tear in my external gearbox boot that sits over the gear selector. I can purchase a replacement but i did wonder how to replace it. Can it be done in situ ? do i need to take it apart to slide the boot on or can it just be slid on somehow ?

have attached a pic of the part concerned, any help would be much appreciated!

Its a DIY job remove the battery and tray and you should be able to get to it. you just need to take off the weight and pull the selector arm up as far as it will go and wedge it in place , this will give you room to remove the old boot rubber and metal ring if you have both new ( for metal ring to be removed there are 2 bolts to be taken out which is clear to see)
once off replace new one bolt up and done.

Its just a little fiddly with the holding the selector in the fully pull up position but your be ok

good luck
