Rear brake question - F800GS

What is this rubber part on the bottom left:


And more importantly, what is the proper way for me to put it back where it rightfully belongs? Do I need to take the pads off and insert it from the backside?

Thanks.

I think this is a dust cover of some sort that fits over the "pin"...which should still be attached to the rubber part on the bottom right of your picture. I have seen this pulled of an F650GS front brake before, and all efforts to re-insert it were fruitless...

Let me guess, you pulled on it to see what was underneath and it came right off...

More or less. I found instructions on how to put it back in. Will attempt it on Saturday

I had one of these rubber boots fail on one of the front calipers. I'll see if I can get the dealership to warrantee replace it next time I'm in. I'm also going to see if I can get them to show me how to replace it - looks to be a pain in the ass.

On the rear brake it was actually really easy to put back on. After I removed the brake pads I could separate the caliper from the carrier, but the rubber gaitor back on, and then put everything back together.
