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:smash:
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.
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.
Got the notice few weeks ago, still waiting on the second. You can also check the status on the Ford site owner section. Apparently they issued a notice in December for this but guess those are bad too.
