This was a very helpful thread. The whole process of removing the airbag safely, detaching the original steering wheel, and attaching the new one couldn't have went any better for me. I have read that it was a hassle for some to pry the two notches that hold the airbag but for me it took less than 60 seconds to do both. I simply had a small screwdriver and pried it towards the center of the steering wheel until there was a small click. Once I heard the click, that half of the airbag slid out like butter.

Special thanks to andresmorago for the guide to safely disabling the SRS. I was a bit worried about tampering with the airbag but following andresmorago's guide went perfect and no problems were encountered.

so to understand correctly and to clarify, what steering wheels are compatible with a 2016 Base SE? I've seen a 2015 Escape; anything else?

Actually, the 2015 Ford Escape steering wheel does not fit with the 2016 base se. The 2017+ Ford Escape steering wheels will fit. Also the 2017+ Ford Kuga

Does this work with the MK3 focus (2012-2014)? I have a 2013 and would love to switch it to sport mode on the shifter.

I have a 2014 SE that I switched over. $30 for an OBDII USB adapter with MS/HS-CAN switch (for enabling Sport mode with FORscan) from Amazon, $20 for a shifter knob with Sport paddle and correct wiring from eBay, and about 45 minutes to take apart the center console, replace the knob, splice in the wiring, reassemble, and program with FORscan.

I'd you don't want to do any splicing, you could buy an entire shift assembly for $70-80.

For a pre-facelift, you should be able to directly swap a 12-15 escape wheel with paddles directly. Just search on ebay. I couldn’t find one at the moment but they constantly pop up. Did it to my ‘15 and it was a direct swap. 12-16 should work with mk3.0 and 17+ works with mk3.5. Direct swap on facelifts. Shouldn’t be any wiring for you.

If this is the case, I will be doing it shortly. Just gotta figure out how to get sport mode instead of L haha

So I got the OBDii plug, I got sport mode working, and I ordered a shifter on eBay with the shift buttons, plugged it in and nothing, found out my 2014 focus SE hatch is missing the center pin for the shifter buttons, the 3 pin plug fits but the center pin isn't there. The stock shifter had a down hill button and it just had the outer two wires. Any idea if this is just ground or where I can find the 3rd wire? Tested the new shifter with a multimeter, the center pin gets shorted to one of thr outer pins when the button is pressed up or down.
