    Hi Ray the omni step is sold as a maintenace free unit all bearings are sealed or nylon
    However I would take step off the van completley and have a go, but thats me can you remove any plates to see whats happening as from memory ther in like a closed box afair

    Thanks Geo,

    Thats exactly whats I'm seeing when I look underneath just not sure if it would all fall apart if I took the bottom plate off it.:Sad:

    Cheers

    Hi Ray thats why I would go for complete removal, there may well be components fixed to the bottom plate that will prevent removing just the plate, or it may well go into the famous Chinese self destruct spring ,boyng rattle, where did that go:Eeek:mode:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
