This shold be done by a pro but disconnect the battery first then wait about 10 minutes prior to doing anything WARNING: When carrying an undeployed inflator module:
Do not carry the inflator module by the wires or connector.
Make sure the air bag opening points away from you.
When storing an undeployed inflator module:
Make sure the air bag opening points away from the surface on which the inflator module rests.
Provide free space for the air bag to expand in case of an accidental deployment.
When storing a steering column, do not rest the column with the air bag opening facing down and the column vertical. Lay the column on its side.

Failure to observe these guidelines may result in personal injury.
WARNING:
Refer to SIR Inflator Module Handling and Storage Warning.

Preliminary Procedures
Disable the supplemental inflatable restraint (SIR) system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling.
On back side of the steering wheel are 2 circular openings, place the wheel so that one opening is on top.
Using a blunt-ended tool, push the spring fastener inward through the access hole. Repeat the step for the other opening.
