  • Sold as Pair
  • Made in Mexico
  • Come with 18mm molding
  • Perfect for those on a budget
  • Trimming required for proper installation
  • The German running boards are simply better, but they are 2x the price

These heavy duty Volkswagen Beetle running boards are an offered as a cost effective option for replacing your running boards. They are aftermarket boards, made in Mexico and are compatible with the 1946-1977 Beetle Sedan and Convertible as well as the 1971-1979 Super Beetle Sedan and Convertible.

Trimming is usually required

The slots slots for the running board to body bolts may not allow the runnigs boards to sit low enough on the body. When this happens, it prevents the door from closing.

18mm Molding is Included

These running boards feature 18 millimeter molding and a stock looking rubber mat. The boards are sold as a pair and include all of the hardware needed for installation.

Heavy Duty Mexican vs. Germany Running Boards

While these running boards are of decent quality, and a great option for daily drivers and cars on a budget, they are not restoration or original German quality. These are much better than many of the other aftermarket running boards that you can twist into a pretzel, but simply stated, the Germans are better. We do offer the German running boards, but the cost is much higher. If you are on a budget or if you are willing to spend the extra time trimming and tinkering to get these running boards to fit, you can save some money versus the German running boards.

Here's some feedback after installing heavy duty Mexican running boards on our 1967 "Get it Running" project.

"Less than half the price, less than half the quality."

Running Board Installation

Please Note: All of our running boards will fit any air-cooled VW Beetle or Super Beetle if installed properly . The running boards are the same bolt pattern throughout the years - if you follow our instructions explicitly, we can assure you that the boards will fit.

  1. Loosen the 13 millimeter fender bolts from the center of the fender down to the running board to allow movement of the fender.
  2. Loosely install 13 millimeter bolts from the running board to the front and rear fenders.
  3. Align the running board to the body and loosely install four 10 millimeter bolts through the running board to the body.
    • If the four 10 millimeter bolts do not align to the body, the slots in the board may need to be trimmed with a file or a grinder to allow the board to drop more.
  4. Check that the running board is all the way down on the 10 millimeter bolts. If not, the door will scrape the running board rubber.
  5. Tighten the four 10 millimeter bolts to secure the underside of the running board.
  6. Tighten the 13 millimeter bolts from the running board to the fender.
  7. Tighten the 13 millimeter fender bolts while realigning the fender beading.
