You're gonna need a T27 torx head to remove the airbag and a 16mm socket 3/8 or 1/2 drive to remove the steering wheel off the hub.

Disconnect the battery first.

Unlock steering wheel

locate and loosen the 2 T27 screws for the airbag behind the steering wheel.

Remove and unplug airbag

remove trim cover under ignition/steering lock housing.

Disconnect the orange and white/black conenctor

remove keys and lock the steering wheel.

Remove 16mm bolt in the middle of the steering wheel. Once removed, mark the hole so you can position the steering wheel back straight.

Pull out steering wheel.

Installation is in reverse order.

Good luck!
