I now have the ability to attach stuff. Maybe this is too late, but here are the Ford notes on installing the newer style window with the upper center antenna connector on the early 05 cars.

Eric - What parts are you going to order, if any? Please keep us posted on what you do and results.
Thanks

Just picked the car up yesterday. The dealer installed (1) 5G7Z 18812 AA, (1) 4G7Z 18812 BB, and (2) 4G7Z 16163 AA. Part of the issue was the windshield had been replaced. The original had the antennae connection in the lower corner and the replacement had the antennae connection top center. The relocation kit had never been installed. Radio works great now! The amplifier really makes a difference. Thanks for all your info.

What is FUBA antenna module? My 05 GT has always had terrible AM radio reception. Is this a fix?

Did you mean part 4G7Z 18812 AB? I don't see that part 4G7Z 18812 BB is a good number.

I don't know. Would look that way based on the Ford notes. Maybe the antenna was relocated in the windshield as well, thus the top center connector. Where is your connector?

Ok, this is where I'm at. The antennae relocation kit that High HP provided above lists 3 part numbers. 4G7Z-1613-AA (bolts), 4G7Z-18812-AB (cable assembly), and 5G7Z-18812-AA (amplifier). The problem my local Ford dealer is seeing is that 5G7Z-18812-AA is no longer a good number. The picture he is looking at shows the amplifier and cable assembly as one piece. So he's not sure what to order. If it's wrong he can't return it. So far he can't get a straight answer from Ford. So my question is, did Ford make the cable and amplifier one piece and if so, what's the part number? Thanks.

My connector is in the top center

I will be at my dealer tomorrow. What is your VIN, I will let you know what they show. My dealer has figured out ordering Ford GT parts, it can be non-standard. All three part numbers appear to be available if you google them.

The module is listed as part of the conversion for the side mounted windshield.

Hi guys,

I need to replace my windshield and was wondering if anyone knew of availability issues these days. Any recent efforts to procure an OEM replacement been a challenge?

Thanks.

not at all. I order OEM windshields for a kit car builder all the time that uses the GT windshields. Guardian industries will build windshields for the GT for as long as we need them. they are the Ford supplier which also installs the radio antenna lead as factory spec.

Are there two different windshields for my ‘05 GT? I’ve been told there are two different locations where the antenna connects. Thanks

Thanks the local ford dealer told me that there are two different locations where the antenna attaches to the windshield and that mine is not the correct windshield for my car. He said one location is by the center rear view mirror and the other is in the lower right hand corner. Is he correct? Thanks
