Wiper Lever Boot

Hi all,

So there’s this boot? that goes around the wiper lever on the right side of the column. I accidentally pushed on in and it went into the column. I was surprised to see that it was just floating there, is it supposed to be that way? Obviously not a huge issue but I’m a perfectionist and it’s bugging me.

Thanks,
Will

I know this is kind of obscure but no one else has experienced this?

I did not respond cause I did not know what you are talking about.
So I went and looked at my '00 and while I can see a rubber "sheet" at the end of the stalk I would not call it a boot.
Looks like it just lays flat under the plastic surrounds, top and bottom, behind the steering wheel.
Pictures and what year the Jeep is might help.

I apologize I wasn’t sure what to call it. My XJ is a ‘98. I’ll try to get a picture on later. All I’m wondering is if it’s supposed to be adhered or something or if it just sits in there, around the base of the lever where it goes into the column.

What you are describing is also how mine appears to be set up.

I think the correct medical term is ocd.

Long stem T20 torx and a Phillips screwdriver can remove the clamshell around the top end of the column. Screws are in the bottom.
Guys say, "Well ****, ain't got no torx". Go to a pawn shop and grab what you need for ~$1/tool.

All parts stores have free loaner tools for anything. If you can afford to buy the tool, you're good. Deposit equals price in case you don't return it. You have 3 months to bring it back. I do that for every tool I know I won't need for a year.
