Quick and easy question - I'm putting my trans back together, disassembled to reseal/gasket/oring to get rid of leaks, and wondered if there is supposed to be anything used to secure the boot that on the shifter:




The factory manual doesn't show anything and there was a zip tie on it when I disassembled it. Wondering if it supposed to be sealing all on its own at the base or if others have used a hose clamp/CV boot clam or other.

I've had good luck with a zip tie. You could go with something heavier if you were worried, but I don't think there is a need.

I put a new boot seal on, didn't use anything...works fine. If you are re-using the old one, might be looser. Ziptie probably best
