Step won't stay up on '68 Intl Sovereign Ambassador

Our entry step (original) will not stay up on our 1968 Ambassador International. It moves back and forth freely but when we raise it to the closed position and drive for a very short period, it will extend back out. Any suggestions? Could we be missing a part?


Thanks
Laurie

Do you have any pics? There should be a bar with a hand grip that you pull outward to lower the step also it holds the step up when the step is retracted. On mine, it takes a good tug to release the steps, in fact, my wife can never do it because she can't pull hard enough to release them.

No bar that I can see. Will try to get a picture tomorrow and post. Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like we could be missing a part.

Send me a PM with your email and I'll be happy to post a pic of mine. I can never remember how to post pics here.
