Sprinter Van Sx-6 Running Boards Download

 


PROCEDURE:
1. REMOVE CONTENTS FROM BOX. VERIFY ALL PARTS ARE PRESENT. READ INSTRUCTIONS
CAREFULLY BEFORE STARTING INSTALLATION. DRILLING IS REQUIRED. ASSISTANCE IS
RECOMMENDED.
2. Starting on the passenger/right side of the vehicle, locate the factory hole in the inner body panel
closest to the front tire opening, (Figures 1 & 2). Remove the rubber plug. NOTE: Mounting locations
may be covered with heavy undercoating. Refer to instructions to find all mounting locations.
3. Select (1) 10mm Bolt Plate and (1) 10mm Plastic Retainer. Partially thread the Retainer onto the Bolt
Plate, (Figure 3). Insert Bolt Plate into the hole in the inner body panel, (Figure 4). Once the Bolt Plate
is inserted, hold the Bolt end with one hand and tighten the Plastic Retainer with your other hand until it
is tight against the body panel. IMPORTANT: The Plastic Retainer is designed to prevent the Bolt Plate
from falling into the body panel and to aid in Bracket installation.
4. Select the unique Passenger/right Front Bracket, (Figure 5). Attach the Bracket to the Bolt Plate with
(1) 10mm Flat Washer, (1) 10mm Lock Washer and (1) 10mm Hex Nut. Do not tighten hardware at this
time. IMPORTANT: The Mounting Brackets look similar. Use the illustration above and the instructions
to properly identify and separate the Brackets for proper installation.
5. Next, select (1) Support Bracket. Attach the Support Bracket to the back of the front Mounting Bracket
with (2) 8mm x 30mm Hex Bolts, (4) 8mm Flat Washers, (2) 8mm Lock washers and (2) 8mm Hex
Nuts, (Figure 6). Line up the mounting flange on the Support Bracket with the outside of the pinch
weld, (Figure 12).
6. Repeat Steps 2—5 to install the passenger side 2nd, 3rd and rear Mounting Brackets and Support
Brackets, (Figures 7—11).
7. Select the long passenger side Running Board. Place the Running Board on top of the (4) Brackets.
Level and adjust the Running Board and fully tighten the Bracket to vehicle hardware only. Temporarily
remove the Running Board.

8. Make sure the Brackets are level to the vehicle. Line up the slots on each Support Bracket with the
outside of the pinch weld. Mark the location of the slots onto the pinch weld, (Figure 12). IMPORTANT:
Do not drill too close to the bottom edge of the pinch weld. Adjust Support Brackets and/or Mounting
Brackets so that slots in Support Brackets are not too close to the bottom edge of the pinch weld. Once
the Running Board and Brackets are properly adjusted and slot locations marked, remove the Running
Board and Support Brackets. Use a 5/16” drill bit to drill the (2) holes through the pinch weld for each
Support Bracket, (Figure 13).
9. Attach each Support Bracket to the outside of the pinch weld with (2) 8mm Hex Bolts, (4) 8mm Flat
Washers, (2) 8mm Lock Washers and (1) 8mm Hex Nuts, (Figures 13, 16 & 20). Repeat this Step to
attach all Support Brackets. Tighten the hardware attaching the Support Brackets to the vehicle only.
10. Select (4) 6mm Double Bolt Plates, (Figure 14). Locate the channels in the bottom of the Running
Board, (Figure 15). Insert the Bolt Plates into the channels in the bottom of the Running Board closest
to the Brackets. Lift the Running Board up and guide the studs down through the Brackets.
11. Attach the Running Board to the Brackets with (8) 6mm Flat Washers, (8) 6mm Lock Washers and (8)
6mm Hex Nuts, (Figures 16 & 20). NOTE: The Running Board is designed to fit close to the vehicle. It
may be necessary to loosen the Bracket hardware and tilt the Brackets downward to insert the Running
Board between the Brackets and the body. Level and adjust the Running Board and fully tighten all
hardware.
12. Move to the driver side of the vehicle. Repeat Steps 2—5 to install the driver side front Mounting
Bracket and Support Bracket, (Figures 17—19). NOTE: The (2) Driver side Brackets are identical.
13. Next, locate and remove the 3rd rubber plug along the body panel. Repeat this Steps to install the
driver side rear Bracket and Support Bracket, (Figure 20).
14. Select the driver/left Running Board. Repeat Steps 6—11 to drill the pinch weld to install the Support
Brackets and Running Board.
15. Check the driver/left Running Board for level then fully tighten all hardware.
16. Do periodic inspections to the installation to make sure that all hardware is secure and tight.
To protect your investment, wax this product after installing. Regular waxing is recommended to add a protective layer
over the finish. Do not use any type of polish or wax that may contain abrasives that could damage the finish. Use Mild
soap to clean the Running Board.
