Replacing the side steps

Our 2008 Range Rover is up on the ramp today having the existing side steps changed for new ones. We are unsure how the previous ones became damaged but never-the-less, we have an exact replacement so our first task is to remove the old and replace with new. Not as easy as it sounds.

The sill covers will need to be removed, cleaned up behind. The existing brackets will need to be removed and replaced with new.

A vast improvement to the existing step which on the surface looked fantastic but underneath the plastic casing revealed a lot of surface rust.

Nothing to worry about now though as the existing set up is now fully removed and replaced with brand new. We have also stripped, cleaned and sealed the areas of the car that we manage to expose prior to fitting back up with the new steps.
