Ok, been going through little Festiva I bought recently. Replacing cv boots, bad ball joint, that sort of thing. Noticed steering rack bellows gone on drivers side of rack. Got one at parts store, didnt think anything about it. When I got home its a universal fit one. The large end however is tapered down to about 3/4 inch and I need to get it over tube about 1 1/4 diameter. I can get only one hand at time up in the little hidey hole. No way I can stretch it to fit while on my back using one hand. No real instructions on pkg except "DO NOT CUT LARGE END OF BELLOWS". The rubber is thinner behind the band at very end. I really dont want to remove whole steering rack to replace the bellows. Do I cut or not. Or is there some trick to this? I dont want to hassle special ordering proper fitting version at Ford dealer (assuming they can still get it).
