Here's a how to do it link:

It looks like you could use some special tools. Sometimes auto parts stores either rent or loan those out.

Bob, I think you missed the part where he said "inner". The link describes the outter (I had already searched without success).

Best of my knowledge most inners are secured with some variation of a retaining clip or ring under the rubber boot covering it, but I have nothing specific on your model.

Autozone said you had already been there. (Why can't I put in a smiley face on an edit?)

I see what you mean - well they should have had the inners on that link!!

I know that is about the same as a Ford Probe of the same years.

To add that smiley just type a colon followed by a capital "D".
