    Front caliper guide pin boot

    Hey Guys,

    Iím chngining brake pads and noticed my caliper guide pin dust cover boot things are ripped and Iím having trouble finding replacements. Looks like it should be #10 on the attached realoem link but that doesnít seem to be correct. Anyone know if these are available separate or do you have to purchase the guide pin kit?

    Thanks!

    Yeah it's part 10. Not sure if those are even available seperatly. No need to get these from the dealer
    I would just get a replacement kit and replace the pins as well

      Thanks D.Martijn! Iím just cheap! Trying to save a few bucks the kit is quite a bit more than just the ďbootĒ.

        you could try to just use rubber cement, and a patch piece of rubber if you are that cheap, the part doesnt flex that much, and if its a small tear might work well, just make sure you use aggresive sandpaper.

                  Oh well, northern auto parts was a no go. I ordered the boots and the next day they refunded my money. No explanation but Iím assuming that they donít have the boots in stock. Doesnít look like theses are available separately anywhere else.

                    The kit lists for something like $15 for pins, boots and bolts. Alternately, you can just get Centric rebuilt calipers for 40 each on FCP.

                      Just tried another option at Rockauto. They list caliper guide pin kit for just a few $, so I ordered it. I will update the thread when I get it in case anyone else cares to know.

                        D-Ohh... I should have replied with "Don't go thinking I'm any good before you have the part..."

                        Can't get the caliper pin boots? Time for a BBK.

                          So I received the caliper pin guide boot kit from Rockauto and the "kit" is just the 4 rubber guide pin boots. Just what I needed!
                          I ordered 4 "kits" so I have 16 boots right now (I only need 8). I would be happy to mail out the extras I have if anyone needs them. I should be able to just stick them in an envelope and mail regular postage, so no cost.

                            Just put those little f’ing booties on. Man they suck to install. I guess if I had a pick it would have made things easier. I ended up using 2 small hemostats but not a fun job!
