3. Finish the removal process by pushing the slave cylinder rod into the cylinder to clear the Mustang power steering slave cylinder mount bracket. Once clear remove the old clamp with the pliers. Do not damage the cylinder rod with the pliers. Remove the rubber boot from the slave cylinder body by pulling on it. If torn like this one, it will come off in pieces. Wipe any dirt from the Slave cylinder rod before installing the new rubber boot.

4. Install the new boot on the Mustang power steering slave cylinder end by pulling it around the housing. Extend the boot until just before the threads begin. Tighten new clamp securely around the shaft. Install one metal washer, then one bushing. Be sure the flat side of the bushing is against the washer. Slide the included metal sleeve over the threaded end of the cylinder and into the bushing. Pull the cylinder rod into the mount. Add the second bushing and washer, again being sure to put the flat side of the bushing against the washer.
