that rubber boot is actually a two piece deal . Slide the cone piece that is tight to the column up towards the steering wheel . You will then see how the two pieces have a tongue and groove type connection . I put wheel bearing grease in that connection and up the intermediate shaft where the boot touches it so no matter what spins is lubed and quiet . 2 minute job .
