Order Notes

Cleaning your PowerStep

In adverse conditions, debris such as mud, dirt, and salt may become trapped in the running board mechanism, possibly leading to unwanted noise, or binding.

Prepare for cleaning

Manually set the running boards to deploy: The running boards can be manually set in the deployed position by opening the door, and then place your foot on the step. Leave firm pressure with your foot on the step while you close the door. This will leave your steps in the deployed position.

How to maintain your steps:

Using a pressure washer to clean the front and rear linkages which are all 4 hinge points for your PowerSteps. Avoid spraying the motors directly.

After washing, apply silicone spray (dry Film lubricant) only, to all 4 linkage arms and all pivot pins, some of these pins will be located up high on the linkage arm as well. Then cycle the door to work the lubrication in to the hinge points.

Do not apply silicone, wax, or protectants like Armor All® to the running board. Do not lubricate with any greases, oils, WD-40, or penetrants.

This cleaning should be done periodically, or when debris such as mud, dirt or salt becomes trapped in the running board mechanism.



All AMP Research PowerSteps come complete with vehicle specific mounting kit and installation instructions. Installation is best left to the professional installers or advanced DIY-ers, due to the wiring involved. As with any installation, be sure to verify all parts are present and carefully read the entire installation manual prior beginning.
