Reinstalling Steering Column Shroud

Hey, I just replaced the turn signal switch on my 01 because it was malfunctioning. The problem is with the top half of the shroud. When I try to put the shroud back on, the dust boot/cover gets in the way. It goes under the shroud and gets stuck where the threads for the screw are. Is this boot supposed to go under the shroud or on top of it? It it needs to go on top, how do I keep it from getting stuck under the shroud?

I have tilt steering.

Thanks

It is supposed to rest on the top plastic piece. It wraps from the top to bottom on the outside. I would take a picture but it's dark.

Thanks. What's the best way to keep it from getting caught under while reinstalling?

If you could take a picture that would be great.

Screw the top and bottom plastic pieces on the steering wheel. Then, put the cluster in and wrap the rubber hanging from the top around the two plastic pieces and connect it at the bottom.

Do you mean the gauge cluster? I didn't take that out.

Are you referring to the accordion pleated piece of rubber that hides the steering column?
On my 1995 it doesn't go INTO the housing, it just touches up against it.
Either yours is too far forward, or mine is too far back...?
