Description
Extra Convenience. For some odd reason Ford did not install interior remote trunk releases on the 2005 to 2009 S197 model Mustangs, but now you can add a Mustang Trunk Release Kit yourself for extra convenience.

High Quality Fit and Finish. Designed to install easily by tapping into the existing stock factory wiring harness, this Trunk Release Kit only requires drilling one hole into the interior of the glove box for a clean factory style appearance. Kit includes factory switch button, and the needed wiring.

Application. This Trunk Release Kit is specifically designed for use on all 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, and Shelby models.

    About Time

    This item worked as it should. However, mounting the ground wire where the instructions say, does not work. The wire is to short and there is no way to route the wire so you can close the clove box. (At least I could'nt find a way).I mounted the wire above the box. There are two 8 MM nuts directly above the box. Use either of them. The positive wire pulled out from the connector. I was lucky to have a spare in the garage. Give yourself more then 15 minutes to install.

    07 remote install

    The 07 does not have easy mount access in the glove box. metal substructure behind most every area make mounting questionable as the structure is not flat anywhere. I mounted mine in the light switch panel and it was smooth going and looks great cause I got a black button, not yellow like it shows.there is a good ground bracket available very close. Check the switch before install as mine did not work but was easily fixed.

    Nice accessory to have

    This kit was fairly easy to install; however, I did not like the idea of putting it behind where the glovebox door closes over it. Instead, I added a much lengthier piece of wire and installed it inside the console's storage area. A lot more work, but now it is installed where the factory probably would have put it in the first place!

    Simple

    I installed this part at the same time as the push to start button. Easy install, I decided to put it in the glove box between the seat - see photos. I just spliced a wire onto one lead and used a ground next to the emergency brake. Love it, works like a champ!!

    Great Product...Better Idea for Placement

    This product worked great for me. I did make one change to the way it's recommended you install it. I placed my button on the left side of the center console right where the driver's right knee is (don't worry, your knee won't hit it if you place it low enough). I then used some bell wire instead of the provided wires to reach the wire harness on the passenger side to splice in. I was able to use the provided ground wire since there are plenty of places to ground under the dash. Worked great for me and I really like the placement of it...VERY HANDY.

    06 remote trunk install

    I installed my remote in the center console storage area on the left. There is simply no room in the glove box as is shown in the instructions. The panel in the glove box shown in the instructions is barely 3/4" in a 2006 and you are instructed to drill a 3/4" hole. This just wouldn't work. I think the instructions are for an older mustang. I had to get extra wire to run to the console but it works just as well from there. It is closer to access than the glove box too. I was able to still install it in under an hour.

    Ford's forgotten trunk release button...

    I chose to install this button directly on the right side of the headlight/fog light switch plate, to the left of the steering wheel. There is a ground nut directly behind the switch, so that took 2 minutes. I ran a longer hot wire underneath and behind the radio and glovebox to the passenger side door sill, where the instructions show you exactly where the harness loom is. The needed wire is white with a very thin pink trace, not really "white and pink". It really took 25 or so minutes. I used a 3/4" step drill to make the hole on the switch plate and went slow. Perfect, factory looking placement. Didn't want it in center console and I didn't want it in glove box. Great product and I'm no longer worried about dropping keys in trunk.

    Trunk release button kit

    Installed mine in the center console, so I had to add a wire to make it longer, no big deal. Has the factory look and if you didn't know, you would think it came that way!

    Trunk release button

    I really liked the added feature of the trunk release button on my V6 unfortunately the first time I bought this after maybe a month I didn't realize the button feel out form the assembly (I installed it in the glove box as example picture shows) I found the button damaged probably stepped on it so I bought it a second time i thought I just probably got a defective one that the legs on the button just didn't secure properly to the rest of the assembly, after 3 weeks of using the second one same thing the button fell out of the rest of the assembly; after buying several items from American Muscle this is the first disappointment this accessory is not functional, do not waste your money on this like I did.
