    Features & Details

    • Adds Convenience
    • OEM Switch/Button
    • No Wire Cutting Required
    • Fits 2005 to 2009 Mustangs
    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 SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit yourself for extra convenience.

    OEM Fit and Finish. Designed to install in minutes with only the need to drill one hole in the interior of the glove box for a clean factory appearance, this kit includes an OEM factory switch button, soldered connections, and heat shrunk protection of the terminal ends. And all the wiring is done in the front passenger area, with no cutting or wiring to the back of the car required.

    Application. This Silver Horse Racing Trunk Release Kit is specifically designed for use on all 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs.

    Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 Details

        Do you run the wiring all the way to the trunk switch or to a connection under the dash without having to route under the carpet ?

        • Hello! This switch does not get wired the whole way to the trunk. For complete step by step instructions, please refer to this link

        The pics submitted by people appear to have two different "cars" on the trunk release button. Which one is shipped, the "detailed" or the "simplistic" one?

        • The design of this button has been updated, and it has a more detailed car on the button.

        Is it possible to install this button on the OEM headlight foglight switch?

        • Yes, it would be possible to install the SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit on the OEM headlight foglight switch area!

        This is a follow up, I pushed the wrong key and submitted an incomplete question. How is the switch retained in the dash? The tabs on the switch don't look like they will fit through the drilled hole.

        • The SHR Mustang Trunk Release Kit can be installed by drilling one hole into the glove box. You may need to turn the button slightly in order for it to fit snug. The link below will take you to a step by step installation guide which will go over drilling the hole and properly installing the button.

            Pretty straightforward

            Installation was pretty straightforward except for they call it pink where it's really closer to white. Would have been a 30 minute job but I had to go to the store to buy more butt connectors.

            Great Looking

            Got this button since I wanted the convenience of a trunk release within my car and not just on my fob. The product looks great and the button press feels great. The instructions weren't the best so I had to do some internet searching, as the instructions said the wire I needed was white/pink but in my car. It was really white/violet. Besides that, I would recommend this

            Worth the money and effort

            It's not fun when Ford forgets something as simple as a trunk release button in the cabin, but it's not an expensive gaffe to replace. Two things to keep in mind: 1) If you want the release in the glove box (as the instructions will detail you), you will have no problems. You have everything you need (except for a $20 drill bit if you don't have it already). Easy enough. 2) If you don't want the release in the glove box, let's say you want it next to the lighting controls like I do, you will need some extra wiring and splicing tools to make it work. Took a couple hours, but it works. In either scenario, if you are not so much electrically/mechanically inclined, you might need someone to help be your counterpart. Overall, very much worth the money. Blends right into everything else (IMO), and if done right, Average Joe will never think it was never there.

            Better than stock

            Why wouldn't this be standard? Whatever... At least this way I can put it where I want it. Super easy to install and wire, the instructions are very clear. There's enough extra length on the wires to customize your location a bit. The clean, detailed image of the car is def better than a goofy cartoonish one.
