Hi Guys / Gals,

I have successfully install the running board for my 2016 GLE350 two days after bought it home. The whole job took me an hour from start to finish.

It an easy DYI:

To Removable:
Old side-skirt is as easy as removing 4 bolt-screws underside, un-snap the clips on the side-skirt then 4 bolt-screw to completely remove it from the vehicle.:)

Install Running board:
Only with ten bolt-screws for side and three main clip for the underside and a few snap-on-clips/points for the topside cover for the installation.


*There are No Guarantee / Warranty as per instruction on work performed on your vehicle. This is only do it yourself (DYI) instruction - Do it at Your Own Risk. Thank You.

Looks fantastic! Have you found a good source for the running boards or did you get them through the dealer?

TIA

There are aftermarket replica out there. much much cheaper than dealer. You will probably pay over $1000 at the dealer, then another $500 for installation.
You can find them on Ebay for $300 and 2 hours of time to install.

Yes, They are available on eBay for around $500, with an hour or two of installation is all you'll need. A bunch of joys in saving and looks good. :)

Just got these for about 230 on fleabay. They installed decently easy, but it took me maybe about 2 hours as I was fiddling with the bolts. Also, the ones I got were all thick plastic/abs. Not sure if the OP got aluminum ones with a plastic vanity cover?

Yes, mine is all black plastic with aluminum top on the stepper, but with metal bolts and nuts to hold it to the vehicle's frame. Stilling loving and going strong.
