Rubber Boot Replacement

I have a 1 1/2" vent pipe on a normal sloped roof and the rubber boot has separated into 2 pieces and leaving a gap. I was down at my local hardware store and found a new flashing with the rubber boot attached. Is there an easy way on how to install the new flashing with the boot attached without removing any shingles? Does someone sell just a rubber boot that will fit over an existing rubber boot so I wouldn't have to remove the old flashing? I have read here on DIY just to put plastic cement around the pipe to seal it. Im located in Arizona where the monsoons will be pouring later this summer and I want to be ready.
Thanks in advance.

You have to remove shingles.

Or go over the cracks/separation with black silicone caulk, as this adheres very nicely to black rubber. I have experience in this, and it holds up.

OK thanks I'll pick up some black silicone caulk and do the job. I don't really want to mess with removing any shingles.

Thanks again for the help.
