Did the split boots come with any hardware? e.g. "limiting screws" and a tiny tube of glue.
The limiting screws are to prevent over tightening into the rubber and potentially causing
damage. The glue is for the seam you bolt together. That's the only place that needs gluing.
Just make sure all surfaces are clean and that should do it.

Contact SAV and get the correct glue to use. Yes, it's specific, though I do not remember the number.

When I've done split boots, I've found that when you try to slide the boot in place, the glue often won't hold the end of the seam. To avoid this, I let the glue set up, then I slide the boot into place and clamp it down.

Be sure to pay attention to the alignment of the seam. It's meant to be in one direction when viewed from the wheel. From what I can tell, this is to allow for the offset flex of the axles in the differentials.

Also, every time I've bought split boots from SAV, they came with a very clear page of instructions. If you didn't get one, I'd ask them about it. If all else fails, I might be able to dig up an old copy in my parts boxes. But if I were you, I'd ask them first.

The recommended glue is from Wurth, Speed Fix Single Shot Glue (0.5g), you can get it here:
http://www.shopwurthusa.com/wurthstorefront/Chemical-Product/Adhesive-and-Bonding/Glues/Super/Speed-Fix-Single-Shot-Glue-(0-5g)/p/0893093

Ain't cheap, none of their products are :(

If you paid a premium for the boots to inc. the glue ask them to ship it out,
but don't accept any questionable substitutes :?

Loctite 414 is the equivalent and I've used it quite a few times with great results. Just don't get it on your fingers! It's one of the fastest and strongest superglues I've ever used.

Here are the instructions as provided by Swiss Army Vehicles:

In the final line of the directions they are referring to the tightening bolt on the clamp. It needs to be 180 degrees from the seam on the boot.

Iv used welding clamps, vice grips with flat plates instead of jaws. Glue then clamp. Go inside and go bathroom or eat. Come back and finish installation. Gives plenty of time for glue to set. I also put a dab of silicone on corners of seam where boot meets axle when I'm done. In case glue leaves a tiny gap.

Post Re: How to install split boots
I am surprised that the service bulletin specifies "glue". I dont have a Pinz but a Haffie and have split boots on it which look basically the same style as those on the Pinz. I assume that when glued it makes it almost impossible to remove the split boot without wrecking it. On my Haflinger I have had to remove my boots a few times for other work and would have got real expensive if I had to replace them each time - they are not cheap.

I coated all faces with silicon RTV - in fact the same as I use on gasket faces elsewhere on the vehicle - I found that when used on the boots it seals and dries to a flexible joint that is easily pulled apart. so the boot can be used over and over.
