  1. First, disconnect the negative battery cable. Inside of the car, slide the 3mm Allen key through the two small holes on each side of the steering wheel. Push the release pins toward the center of the steering wheel and pull out on the air bag. Once the air bag is free, carefully roll it over and disconnect the connections. Set the air bag assembly aside.

  3. Install the new Shelby GT350 steering wheel and tighten the previously removed 24mm bolt. Re-install your steering wheel controls and tighten the T20 Torx screws. Reconnect the electrical connections. Now, reconnect the air bag and then snap it back into place.

  4. Reconnect your negative battery cable and then check for operation. Go on a quick drive and make sure all of your cruise control and steering wheel buttons work accordingly. You're done!

This Ford original steering wheel is standard equipment on the much anticipated Shelby GT350. It features ebony-colored Alcantara suede around the top and sides; with ebony leather on the bottom. White, cross-weaved stitching is used to embroider the fabric around the inside of the steering wheel for that luxurious, supercar look. Its race inspired, flat bottom shape sports a 14.8 inch diameter and there is even thicker grip areas at the ten and two hand positions.

Last but not least, there is a thin strip of ebony leather sewn dead center at the top of the steering wheel to help with wheel orientation. Believe it or not, this is also GT350 specific since the ‘R’ model features a red center stripe and red stitching.

Hey! What’s happening guys? Landan here with Late Model Restoration. Today I’m going to be giving you my quick review on the Shelby GT350 steering wheel fitting all 2015-2016 Mustang.

This Ford original steering wheel is standard equipment on the much anticipated Shelby GT350. It features ebony-colored Alcantara suede around the top and sides; with ebony leather on the bottom. White, cross-weaved stitching is used to embroider the fabric around the inside of the steering wheel for that luxurious, supercar look. Its race inspired, flat bottom shape sports a 14.8 inch diameter and there is even thicker grip areas at the ten and two hand positions.

Last but not least, there is a thin strip of ebony leather sewn dead center at the top of the steering wheel to help with wheel orientation. Believe it or not, this is also GT350 specific since the ‘R’ model features a red center stripe and red stitching.

Moving forward to the fitment and required tools for this Shelby GT350 steering wheel; You’ll need to transfer over your trim, audio and cruise controls, and of course, your airbag. Any of you guys with an automatic transmission will need to transfer over the paddle shifters and any associated trim and mechanisms. This steering wheel will come with a new electrical harness already installed.

The only tools required, is a 3mm Allen key to release the air bag clips which are accessed through the small holes on each side of the steering wheel, a T-20 Torx driver to remove the eight screws securing the trim to the steering wheel, and a 24mm socket to remove the steering wheel to steering shaft bolt. A cordless or air powered impact will help tremendously when loosening this bolt. However, it isn’t on there very tight, so your standard half inch drive socket wrench will work as well.

A couple of other things you’ll want to keep in mind, is to be sure and disconnect the negative battery cable before you begin. Since you will be working with the air bag, work as safe and as careful as you can. Upon removal of the air bag module and the bolt securing the wheel to the steering shaft; be extremely careful not to damage the clock spring.

Overall, this install should take you around 30 minutes to complete and when you’re all done, this steering wheel is definitely worth the money spent. Be sure and reconnect your negative battery cable, and make sure all of the controls work, because this wheel utilizes all of your factory steering wheel controls.
