One of the Pilots we are considering on the lot has unwanted running boards. The dealership has offered to "throw them in for free". They are not lighted. Can I remove them easily? Will they leave exposed points susceptible to weather/rust?

Thanks for your help.

On my '19, the running boards are secured to the under side in 3 places and there are 6 bolts on each side.

Total removal time would be 30 minutes or so just depends how many beers you open and how far your fridge is from where you're working.

If you're doing it in your garage or driveway, save a few Amazon boxes to open and lay flat as it makes it easier for you to slide around on your back.

Take pictures of them on vehicle, then after you remove them. Post them up on classifieds and gets some cash from a member who might be looking for them. If factory Honda they are probably like $300. $150 gets a member a great deal and you and wife can go to decent dinner.

And grab a can of Fluid Film from Lowes and spray the holes the bolts came out from and where brackets were touching in case paint got worn OR you want o add some in the future. The bolts took off paint inside threads that will rust up eventually.

Hello everyone, new member here and I apologize if this is an ignorant question but I did search the website and could not find a better place to post this question. What are the tools that would be needed to remove running boards?

They just bolt up so a ratchet / sockets / wrench in appropriate size.
