Ford OEM Shelby Mustang GT350 Steering Wheel

This Ford original Shelby GT350 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, the install should only take you around thirty minutes to complete! No doubt about it, the Shelby GT350 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 steering wheel utilizes all of your factory steering wheel controls!
