Easy to remove running boards


Asked by steveNH777 Nov 09, 2012 at 05:25 PM about the 2013 Kia Sorento EX AWD

Question type: General

My 2013 Sorento came with running boards. We don't like them because it's harder to get out of the car. Is it easy and straightforward to remove them. Any hiiden alligators?

Yes and no. It is pretty easy to remove, they more or less pull out breaking the retaining clips and are held on by a few screws on the ends as well as some 2 sided tape. the problem is that you'll be left with the holes for the retaining clips and a space where the running board had touched and destroyed the exterior trim panels that will require purchasing I believe like 6 different panels (3 on each side)
