Cut the old boot off. Remove the ballbearings from the cup. The unit should come apart. Remove the snap-ring/clip from the shaft. The inner ball race should come off the shaft. Slide the new boot on past it's normal position. Install all components the reverse of dis-assembly. Band the boot to the shaft. Fill with greese and band the boot to the outer shaft.
