    Anyone know the Ford part number for the GT350 steering wheel airbag? I presume this airbag has the snake emblem. Tried searching with a VIN from a 2018 GT350, but it's not terribly obvious (to me) on Ford Parts, just what item it is, or whether I can even order it...

    Thanks! Right. I'd like to "re-badge" the steering wheel in the spirit of McQueen's '68. I'd prefer an actual GT350 snake-badged airbag, as I'm not really keen on applying a stick-on knockoff from China.

    One more question: there are a few online sellers...some with less than satisfactory reviews. Any recommendations?

    Cool idea since the original had a Shelby wheel. If you find a way to replace it without buying the actual air bag (just the cover) I'd love to know. I want to replace mine with a stock air bag cover with the pony. Thanks!

    I'm not recommending, but did see this when searching for my need. Looks like you tell them what badge you want...

    There are lots of the "stock" covers on eBay, but like you said, I don't want a chinese knock-off. Who knows whether or not it would open correctly.

    Your best bet may be to look at wrecking yards. If you can find a steering wheel that didn't have the airbag deployed, you might be able to pick one up cheap, then remove the cover and swap it over onto yours...

    Also be sure the Shelby airbag you are acquiring is definitely for an 18/19; the 15-17 airbags will not work on an 18/19 .

    Thanks. My dealer parts guy said it will work, and it's listed on every ford parts site as correct for all GT350s built after 6/24/2016. If it's not correct, the dealer will refund me so I'm not out anything. However...there is no stock at any parts depots and he said I should have it inside of a month. So, we'll see...

    Airbag finally arrived. Swapped it out tonight after also changing out the rear taillight molding for the Accelatec smooth panel.

    Was the part number (JR3Z-63043B13-BA) correct?

    That's really nice; a great improvement over what Ford thought we should have :clap:

    Thanks all!

    Yes!, Yes, it was. I'd been monitoring the corporate Ford Parts site every few days and it persistently indicated the GT350 Steering wheel airbag was on back order. So when I got a late morning phone call from my dealer while at work on Wednesday, I was pleasantly surprised to learn it had arrived. I collected it from the parts department and got it home before I noticed the box was marked, top and bottom, that once the seal was broken it could not be returned. I figured I was safe, though, as the dealer would need to make it right. On a side note, boy those steering wheel airbag springs on the 2019 (or maybe just the Bullitt) are really stiff...

    Ford Corporate Parts site? Care to elaborate and provide link?

    How do you like that rear panel as far as quality and fitment? Is it polished piano black or painted?

    I may be using incorrect nomenclature; the site is this and it redirects you to "local" dealer parts sites.

    I was pleased with the Accelatec when I opened it in my shop and installed it in my garage...at 11pm. It's tough to fit this stuff in sometimes. Anyway, in daylight I noticed it has a raised point on it that you can see if it catches the light. It's not quite the same quality as the Ford part. If the Ford part is a 10 (arbitrary scoring), then the Accelatec is probably an 8.5. But, it did come with all hardware, etc. Based on other reviews, I didn't expect that. Also, it's much cheaper on ebay; wish I'd seen that before I ordered mine. Oh, and it's polished not painted.

    Funny they used a CJ Pony Parts picture on eBay, but it doesn't seem to be CJ selling the part.
