I had mine done early too, but the ford registry still says I need to replace it.

That is the case , because the unit installed was not the updated version with the fix. The whole airbag issue is being felt across the automotive spectrum. Its a mess...............

Kinda stupid, but it doesn't cost me anything to get it done. I'll stand by for my letters.

Just got mine yesterday. The '05-'07 (I think) were part of the original recall a little while back. They 'recently' adding the rest of years; that is why we are just getting ours. And yup, mine says no parts yet.

I also received mine on Monday. It said we will be receiving a second letter letting us know when the replacements parts have been made and to contact our dealers for appointments... Who knows how long that will be

According to what I read, the recall affects close to 50 million cars world wide over a period of 5+ years. If that is true, I wouldn't expect the replacement airbags to be available this year.

I tried getting mine replaced over the winter and in spring. They couldn't get parts. I tried again a couple weeks ago. Dealer ordered the air bag and it came in a few days later. They may get back logged again now that letters were sent but you can always check with your dealer.

Is this an complicated fix? Are they replacing the airbag or just a sensor?

I believe it's the whole airbag as the igniter is integral with it. The igniter is where the "shrapnel" is coming from. I replaced my steering wheel and transferred the airbag. Start to finish, less than 45 minutes.

Each new replacement air bag is assigned specifically to the vin # of your vehicle. Once the second notice arrives , the dealer has been given the air bag for your car to install. I repeat, any air bags installed prior to a first notice were not upgraded units, but a stock unchanged replacement and are not good. The chemical detonation compound used in the bag has been changed with a structure mod to the unit as well. To get the new unit you must have a second notice of recall.
