there should be 4 nuts on the back side of the steering wheel look for the holes and once you get those off it should just be pulled out towards you.

probably should remove the srs fuse prior to any disassembly

Before attempting any disassembly of an airbag-equipped steering wheel, disconnect the positive battery terminal. Wait 15 minuets. Then before removing the four screws, seat yourself in the car and reach down and touch the pavement. This will ground out any residual electricity you may be carrying. Some late model (2000-2005) Buicks have a "clock spring" mechanism on the airbag and you should note the timing location of the spring before removing the airbag from the steering column. Info provided by a GM training video on airbag servicing.

Get a star wrench or alen wrench set. Go on back side of sterring wheel and remove the airbag bolts. Slowly pull airbag off the steering wheel. Pay close attention to where the wires are attached let the airbag wrest on steering wheel and then release the cables from steering wheel. remove old harness and replace with new one. be sure you replace all the cables in the right place and carefully replace airback and 2 screws.

When my airbags went off, the controls on my steering wheel quit working, when the new harness was installed, everything works fine

Typically, replacing any factory steering wheel that has the airbag incorporated into it, with any type or brand of aftermarket steering wheel, the airbag diagnostic module will "see" that there is an airbag missing, and it will request an illumination of the airbag/srs warning lite...
