      If you got it why not tell the rest of us how it was done? Oh, ok...fine. Disconnect negative battery terminal. Remove the plastic steering column surround, 2 phillips head screws in the bottom and pull the 2 sections off. Get a short to medium length flat head screwdriver (short enough so it doesn't hit the speedo window).

      Turn the steering wheel 90degrees (from level) to the left so the right spoke is pointing up, this gives more room to work. Feel behind the spoke for a hole, a bit smaller then a dime. There is a little hook that you have to pry towards the middle of the steering wheel, I believe, to get it to unlatch. Just pry back and forth until the screwdriver catched it. The airbag is spring loaded so once unhooked it will pop out.

      Once it unlatches, turn the steering wheel 180degrees to the right and do the same on the left spoke. Once both hooks are pry'd off your airbag should pop off the steering wheel. Then disconnect the airbag wire. Just press on to install. Good luck.
