Just noticed a tear in the passenger boot close to the transmission. I ordered the kit to replace it, but had one question. Do I need a press to remove the old flange or can I remove the clip and slide it off. I'm in Miami, so no rust concerns.

No press necessary, you’ll need to clean it up to see the clip. There are different methods of popping that end off. You tube has some suggestions for the MK4. I’ve been able to just tap the end off with a hammer.
