I just got the notice in the mail that the passenger side recall, 16S26, now shows PARTS AVAILABLE!

This is NOT showing up in the Ford recall page yet though...

Good news for sure. Was wondering what was going on since the airbag company went broke?

Got mine as well, working with the local dealer to schedule a house call for the swap.

Received the same letter for my 05 GT. Waiting on the dealer to order and receive the parts. I hope it is for real this time

Dealer and tech contacted me today, parts have arrived.

Will schedule install when I'm back in town.

Local dealer said today no passenger side available yet despite Ford's letter. (He'll honor Ford Customer satisfaction program 14B009 regarding FGT airbag inflators replacement at owner's home). :thumbsup

Went to the dealer today. Girl at the service desk was a Moron; "We have done a million of these" even after I reminded her several times that it wasn't a mustang. She couldn't hear a word I was saying. Insisted the lower dash did not have to come off, they know what they are doing etc.

Talked to my go-to guy in parts who sent me to the concierge desk. Much better response but I can tell you the desk still had no idea what I was talking about.

They did confirm they have 3 passenger systems in stock. I said great, I will be back in a few weeks and asked for an appointment...............not so fast. They have 4-5 customers waiting and it will be first come-first serve. They said they can't put my name on one. They can only order another after one is installed.

I have an appointment for the 9th, we'll see how that goes. I will confirm I still have an actuator in stock before I pull in. Once there, I better be able to stay with the car or I will have to go elsewhere. This is exactly the part I was dreading; the crappy dealer experience.

I've lost track. Is this the definitive 'fix' or just another band-aid like the first round of replacements?

This is the final fix.

I had some warranty work done years ago (clamshell vents) at Galpin and a windshield replacement done there as well. They were terrific.

I had my driver's airbag replaced at Santa Monica Ford and they also did a fine job. That's where I plan to get the passenger one changed out.
