Can Rusted Running Boards Be Repaired On A 1997 Nissan Pathfinder


how to repair rusted running board for 97 pathfinder

Expert Reply:

It will depend on how bad the rust is on the running board. If it is a painted finish and just minor surface rust you might be able to have the rust removed and repainted.

If it has a chrome finish and is minor rust you might be able to have a local chrome shop just fix that area, but sometimes the cost to repair chrome could run more than to replace the boards.

If the rust is really bad to where it will cause strength issues then it will be better to just replace the running boards.

The Westin Signature Series Step Bars, # 25-1225, you have referenced are a black powder coated finish which is corrosion resistant. The finish has a 3 year warranty. It is a bolt-on installation.

I am sending a link to the installation instructions on the Westin step bars.
