A trying to install the driveshaft into my roadster’s T5. Is the thick rubber plug around the T5 shaft supposed to stay in with the shaft in place or is it a protective boot for shipping purposes? It is separate from what appears to be a dust shield around it. If it stays it looks like it would bind to the driveshaft in short order and tear things up. I don’t see how the shaft is supposed to slip in with it there, but don’t want to pull it out if it’s supposed to stay. Thanks.
