throttle cable rubber boot

hey everyone,
i was adjusting my throttle the other day and as i was putting the rubber boot over the adjusters and of course, i tore it up.

anyone know if i have to have this boot over the adjuster nuts?

is it hard to replace?

anyone have a part number?

thanks!!!

I don't believe they have to be there, I think they only protect the adjusters on the cables.
They are replaceable, you have to disconnect the cable at throttle body, slid new boot on and readjust.
Sorry, don't have the part number, Skip

The boot is to prevent the cable adjusters from rusting. Buy a new one. It will save you the cost of a new cable in the near future. Hardly a major expense. Go to the dealer and pick up a new boot for about $2.50. The Part number is 38653-01 Throttle Boot. You will need to remove the cable end from the housing to install it. Service manual tells how to do this.

Even with the rubber boot my adjusters are rusting. It's humid down here.
