    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I would just get a replacement kit and replace the pins as well
    Thanks D.Martijn! I’m just cheap! Trying to save a few bucks the kit is quite a bit more than just the “boot”.

    Front caliper guide pin boot

    Hey Guys,

    I’m chngining brake pads and noticed my caliper guide pin dust cover boot things are ripped and I’m having trouble finding replacements. Looks like it should be #10 on the attached realoem link but that doesn’t seem to be correct. Anyone know if these are available separate or do you have to purchase the guide pin kit?

    Thanks!
Working...
