To remove the damaged part and install a new one, you first need to completely remove the shock absorber with the dust boot and the bump stop. Next you need to remove the boot from the slot and remove it from the castellated nut. After that, you need to clean the mechanism from dirt. Next, a new part is installed, and the construction itself is reassembled.

Replacement of the boot requires efforts of several people and presence of special tools. For the part to last a long time, it is strongly recommended to install the original shock absorber dust boots.
