I assume he's talking about the rubber boot that covers the caliper slide pin. The design of the left caliper makes it nearly impossible to grease the two slide pins on the left caliper without taking off the brake line. The best you can do is gently lift up a corner of the boot and try to spoon some grease under it on the tip of a screwdriver or inject it out the end of a small hypodermic needle with the needle removed.

Ah yes thanks for taking the time to explain it, I should have known.
