remove the four screws that come from the backside of the steering wheel this should allow you to remove the center part be careful with the air bag connection* Disconnect the battery for thirty minutes to discharge the airbag capacitor before removing the airbag. Wear protective eyewear. Hold the airbag with the cover aimed away from you. Do not mess with the airbag electrical connections while it is disconnected.
