OLDSMOBILE AURORA AIR BAG PROBLEM

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora • 300,000 miles

How do you removal the center cover to remove the air bag? The back cover will not release from the leather cover. Got the column taken apart but I am stuck on these two items. I am trying to replace the cruise control lever.

Steering wheel airbag. Cannot get the back side cover lose from the front leather cover.

Do you absolutely need the specialty tool I read about in the Mitchell catalog? Is there an easier way? Just need some advice from someone? I got the car dismantled (covers top & bottom, lower dash, etc) removed. Just cannot get the rear steering wheel cover lose and the leather front(air bag) lose.
