The lumbar support broke on my 2008 bullitt. Although I am young I have a bad lower back and desperately need lumbar support. The new lumbar kit is $350. I am going to try to take a cheaper way out and buy a kit out of a salvage yard. When I called my local salvage yard they asked for my interior code. My interior code is TW. I am worried that because the car is a bullitt that it has a different interior code from other mustangs.
It would be much appreciated if those of you with 2005 to 2009 mustang coupes, with power lumbar support could post your interior codes and model year. I do not need the right color or material in the seat I just need the right internals of the seat. Thanks!

I believe Ford custom built a lumbar support system specific to only the Bullitt edition, so you'll need to find another Bullitt to salvage from....< /sarcasm >

...Now back to reality, the lumbar support from any 05-09 Mustang should work.

Are you sure it's broken and not just a blown fuse?

I know it broke because I was driving down the interstate and I heard it snap and it quit working. The motor still turns over though.

I know ford did not build a bullitt edition lumbar support. I just need other interior codes, so I can go to the salvage lot with the right codes to get the right parts.

My point was that there isn't a lumbar support specific to your interior code or special edition package. Any 05-09 lumbar support will work. It's not like they color-code the things, and all the seat appearance trims were just that...appearance. The internal workings remain the same.

You just need to know if you have a convertible or a coupe. They only made two units (one for the 05-09 coupes, and one for the 05-09 verts). I do not know what the difference is.

Have fun with that. It's a ridiculous, stupid, flimsy part. The dealership here in Canada wanted $800 for it, I think I called in the US and it was around $500. Either way it was stupid. I always turn the lumbar support to max anyway so what I did is took the seat frame into a machine shop. they welded in a 1/8" steel plate there, to which I glued upholstery foam and cut it to the right shape. I'll admit, I had too much at first so I took it apart and cut some off and now its perfect, permanent and solid.
