The rear driveshaft boot on my '09 RT does not hook into the shaft housing. I can get the front to attach completely flush, but not the back of the boot.

Do they just get hard over time, and not want to snap in completely? I see there are four teeth on the plastic lining for doing this.

My concern is the entry of dirt, water, etc.

Do you think this is a consumable, and just has to be replaced periodically?

A couple of things, do you lube it before installation, rubber grease or the bmw product. Second the internal plastic ring that has those little clips can be broken not allowing the clips to function. You should be concerned, replace it as needed. Twelve years, it has done its duty.
