Step 3. Spray lubricant behind the circuit board to lubricate transmission.

Step 4. On rear of the hinge there is an 8mm bolt remove it and knock out aluminum wedge. Remember which way it comes out. That wedge is a keyway that makes the board move with the motor shaft.

Step 5. With the wedge removed, spray all the moving joints with lubricant and work the hinges up and down, until everything moves freely. Working the lubricant into all the joints.

Step 6. Install wedge back into place; install motor cover back on to motor. ( Make sure that the rear bearing is aligned to accept the motor shaft. you might have to wiggle it back and forth to seat the cover. Plug in wiring harness and try it out, then install it back on truck.

Very simple and easy to fix. It probably will take you less that 1 hour. I will post pictures this week when I do the other side. The side that I repaired deploys up and down twice as the other side now.

Rebuild and rebushing

I run a small shop in st Thomas Ontario and I rebuild these running boards no motor work though
depending on the amount of rust or damage to the pins anywhere from $500 to $1000 max for the set

HI Bob-
I'm curious as to what I would need to replace if the retractable running board on my drivers side of my 2013 F-150 Limited is delayed 15 seconds. This happened when I unplugged the battery to change batteries. Now the passenger side works like normal, but the drivers side is delayed. I think the problem is with the module, but not sure where that is or what to replace. Any ideas??

Thanks for the response.
