Removal of Step 1968 PA28-180D

Apr 19, 2022

Hi all,

I need to remove the step on my 180 to address some corrosion on the step. (this is owner performed under IA supervision) Does anyone know whether the fasteners are bolting into a threaded hole or nutplate through a structural member or if they have nuts? I've checked the service manual and parts manual and it doesn't show fasteners so I'm just trying to determine if I need to remove any interior or not.

I asked by IA but he can't remember either so just trying to pick someone's brain that has already done it.
