Steering Wheel Airbag Removal

I just want to remove the steering wheel pad/airbag so I can inspect the CC connections, I checked the manual, & it isnt descriptive enough for me to grasp. I searched and I really didnt find much. Of course there is no margin of error as we're dealing with explosives, so I need help. How do I go about removing it?

I'm sure reattaching would be along the same lines.

Thanks!

On both sides of the wheel assembly, between the spokes, just behind the plane of the wheel rim, there are two small round covers, about 1/2" or so in diameter. These look like round plastic plugs. Remove them and you will find torx fasteners (one each side). Remove the torx screws and the airbag assembly will come free.

So I just remove the plastic pieces on the steering wheel, and it's right behind it.
Do I need anything special to remove the torx fasteners?

got it.

I usually know what I'm doing, but when it comes to Air Bags, I always avoided messing with them.
Eh, I'll do it tomorrow, see what I can pull off.

Thanks!

Don't worry Adam, I'm not that stupid.
Should I really disconnect the SRS fuse? The shop manuals say just the battery. Then again you are the shop manual.

You don't "have" to, vut I do it just for added security as it only takes 2 second's. It;s the fuse behind the coin holder.

Yeah but I'm a lazy piece of ____.

Thanks for looking out, without you I'd probably end up with a dislocated shoulder from an old exploding air bag.
