Yes, and the air bag must be removed as well. Unless you've been trained to handle air bag circuitry, don't do it. It's dangerous and even the smallest mistake can be costly. ==Answer #2== Mr. Dog says: True enough, even if a bit dramatic. With a good manual and some speciality tools (usually available for rent from quality auto parts stores) you should be able to do it. I did the same job on my 1996 Jimmy. It took a couple of hours, and included some frustrating moments, but wasn't technically all that difficult. But be aware of the risks! Like the first answer dude said, if you mess up with the airbag, you could be severely injured and it will cost you hudreds of dollars in repairs. Get a good manual (I use Haynes #24071, which covers your model) and read the proceedure over and over and over. Also, if you haven't done much work on cars in the past, maybe try a few other projects first to get your sea legs. While your project isn't hard, it has it's own set of risks. Good luck, and drive hard!
