disconnect the battery.... wait 5 mins

use a allen key to remove the screws on the back of the steering wheel cover, you will need to turn the wheel to accsess them, pop the airbag off and the t5 (i think its called that) bolt is in the center, pull it out, and the wheel will come off with a good tug.

Loosen (dont take off completely) the bolt first before u give it a good tug! otherwise u wil end up with a rearranged face!
