    Transfer boot

    Anyone know how I can repair my inner transfer boot? This is the rubber one, not the outer leather boot. Mine is dry rotted and torn and I don't want to pay $70 bucks for a new one! I soaked it in bleach white and got the rubber pretty pliable but now what?

    Yes, I was fooled too at first. Thought it was the celica.
    The inner transfercase shifting boot, I believe.

    Are you talking about this one?

    On the transfer case shifter?

    If so, I ordered mine from Toyota...

    I am not aware of anything that is going to repair the cracks and dry rot in your rubber boot.



    Odds on, a new piece from Cdan is not going to be 70.00, and, will likely last you the rest of your life in that Land Cruiser. If you have a nice Land Cruiser, the 'investment' in a piece like this, really is not that big of a deal. You could always try and post something up in the wanted section, who knows, someone may have a decent one lying around that they are not using, and be willing to give it away... :)



    You could always hack something together with an inner tube and some glue.... :)



    Good luck!

    Rubber glues real well with superglue. That is how I have successfully repaired unobtanium rubber hoses, etc.
