Question

I have a quick question of the correct installation of the white push rod boot that goes on the back of the brake booster against the fire wall.

How far inside the firewall should this part go? There is a collar where it meets the firewall. Should I force the collar through the firewall or just place the boot against the firewall? I am concerned with leaks inside the car.

Should I use a little silicon glue?

Thanks for the advice?

I think since the booster was designed to be quikly put on the car while on the assembly line, you should just bolt it up and it should seal. If you are worried about leakage, I think the only way it would leak is if you blasted it with a pressure washer.
If it makes you feel better you could put some silicone on it, but normally that area should not be wet, even driving in the rain.
I'd be more worried about carbon monoxide fumes more than water.

It just presses against the firewall. Shouldn't be a need to seal it...
