Chris, I replaced both my inner and outer shift boots, only removing the shift knob, which you can wiggle and pull straight up off the gear shift lever. The inner shift boot came from Classic Alfa with a bit of a disclaimer about whether it would fit a Montreal or not.
The rubber boot was a very tight fit! I boiled a bowl of water, threw the shift boot in the hot water and ran out to the garage with it. On about the 5th attempt, I got lucky and the boot slid over the transmission.
