If this is some sort of warranty thing I bet it doesn’t apply to 10 year old vehicles - like mine Big Cry Geoff

The front offside bracket for my deployable steps has broken is this available as a part or will I have to fit new steps. Obviously if anyone has one for sale I would be interested. Geoff

Thanks Craig - it would appear not - just had car into Indy and I specifically asked them to check the knuckles for cracks (it was in for its MOT) and that front bracket, they gave it a clean bill of health on both counts and attended to both the side steps and the deployable towbar and got them both working perfectly. They still took 800 quid off me but there was a big sevice as well. Geoff

just been reading this thread, i do not think you need to apologise gremlin, I have the same problem, daughter rang me one morning to ask could i be at home to accept a delivery, ( told me, don't worry it's only one item and cut the call )what was delivered ? A full electric, folding, super duper treadmill, took three of us to lift the box from the wagon into the garage, then this muppet had to assemble it Censored Big Cry

As for the drunken purchases, I am familiar with that thread and guilty of said purchases after imbibing a few libations Whistle glad to see you are still keeping the tradition going with the wet blaster Thumbs Up Rolling with laughter

I was having similar problems with the steps.

Just replaced the starting battery and lo, it appears to have cured the trigger happy steps at the same time. 2016 SDV8 AB

So I pressure-washed them today. And did the lubrication. They are still stuck.

When I open the door it jumps a bit - same as before. But no movement when I close the door.

I can't make noise tomorrow - Sunday’s Law in Germany. So I can't do anything more until Monday.

Are there any other Ideas?


Reviving this old thead in case it helps someone. I have read lots from people who have had different issues with the steps being stuck. In my case, this was exactly as luxmoggy describes: the step is stuck in the out posistion, and when I open the door it jumps. When I close the door it doesn't jump. No amount of pushing the step did anything. On the main screen, it intermittently showed a message saying that there was an obstruction detected.

This was the fix - Clean, lubricate and reset the side steps:

Pressure washed and dried the mechanism. Used wd-40 and then copper grease anti-seize spray on the hinges.

To reset the steps, open the drivers door and wait for all illumination on the srcreen or dash to power-down.

Remove the spare wheel to reveal the battery. Remove the negative terminal and wait 10 mins.

Reconnect the terminal, and start the car. Leave a few mins and then operate the door.

This worked for me - hope this helps.
