Hello fellow Atlas owners,

I recently got a Blue VW Atlas SE/w Technolgy and been loving it so far. I am looking to add a side step for ease of entry. The VW site lists one for 660 which seems very steep for that part. I searched around on ebay and there are a few listed at ~325.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with after market side steps for the Atlas and have any recommendations?

What's your price point if you don't mind me asking? And do you want a running board or steps?
There should be a few universal options out there that may fit the Atlas.

Side Step installation

Hi, We would like to install side steps ourselves. Are the holes pre-drilled into the body of the Atlas?

thanks

Depends on the model of side step you install but most are designed to mount into existing holes. You will almost certainly have to cut some holes in the baffles though

I think they are not necessary and very unattractive. If there is a physical need, OK. Otherwise, I don't see the need.

I just installed the side steps myself . While the video above helped me a lot I would just like to add some useful ( at least for me) information:
  • picture of the dimensions for the cut out
  • pictures of the metal brackets / flat head screw, which I taped on the top to avoid losing it during installation
