Two questions about axle job

Hey everyone two quick questions:

1. I installed a CVJ axle and the rubber on the inner boat is stuck in on itself. I've been trying to work out the bump but I every time I push it out the bump moves over on the rubber. Can I leave it like this and have the force of the axle spinning work itself out?

2. I realized there was a protective coating on the one axle I installed. I never removed the coating and now it is happily clipped into the differential and wheel hub. Is it safe to leave the protective coating on it or should I unbolt the wheel hub and work the entire axle out again?

Thanks !

A bump after <2hrs? Man, you're eager to get this fixed...

Regarding the boot issue, can you snap a picture? Most likely it will work itself our after a few miles of driving.

And for the 'protective coating' are you talking about a film or label on the axle shaft itself? Don't see any reason to remove it accept for aesthetics.

Yeah well I'm kinda underneath the car right now so

I ended up pulling the axle shaft any way and removing it. When CVJ ships the axle shafts they put a protective coating that comes off with acetone. I didn't remove it on the first shaft install.

I pulled it and the crease on the rubber came out and I cleaned off the coating.

Sorry for my impatience!
