appreciate if someone could point out where I can find the procedure in the

The half shaft should be removed. To do so, with a 250# torque wrench or
breaker bar and a cheater, remove the large nut on the wheel hub. 32mm

your exhaust system, lower the inner shaft, pull out the shaft from the
wheel hub, and remove the shaft. Removal of the old boot and replacement of
the new one will be shown in the directions provided by the boot maker.
