Default Re: T4 Aluminium Side Steps/Running Boards

Hi Simon, thanks for the speedy reply.

The rear brackets were fitted as per the instructions and don't cause any problem.

The floor pan on the vehicle are different on the N/S and O/S though. The middle brackets shown on your pics are only for the O/S.

The N/S brackets are completely different as the there is no horizontal plane under the N/S door to fix the same bracket to.

The N/S bracket supplied is designed to hang on the vertical plane, The only place I could get it to fit was 18" back from the front bracket (instructions don't show location)

I have attached the images below for the N/S middle and as you can see they are completely different to the O/S.

I have also shown with the top arrow the issues with the fixing plate pulling through and also the stainless nuts I had to insert to level up.

Hope this helps

There's every possibility that I've missed the locating point ??
