Question on GL 450 Running Board

Hi to all! Very new here. In fact this is my first post.

Anyways, have a 2007 MB GL 450. Wanted to buy a set of running board but MB of Sacramento said I have to talk to their service department first since the thingy comes in only as a part, not as an accessory so therefore the parts guy said he wouldn't know what hardware does he need to order for me besides the pair of running board.

Any idea what else should I order? I know I read somewhere here before how at least two members were able to buy the pair and install them themselves. Please share your experience and list the hardware I need to order too besides the running boards themselves.

Thank you and Mabuhay

Parts department is mistaken.

B6 688 0630 is part number for the running boards kit

B6 688 0620 is number for the tubular side step bars alternative

These kits should come with installation instructions and all installation parts, although DIY installation is probably almost not feasible. I suppose the instructions could refer to common nuts/bolts not included but that shouldn't be a problem and the descriptions will be comprehensive.

You can check prices for these kits here (don't enter the B)

Mercedes Parts Superstore - Mercedes Accessories, Mercedes Parts Dealer

Prices here will be cheaper than your dealer but don't include freight.

It's pretty likely instructions are also included in WIS, from which your parts man can print. But, they again should come with the kit.
