You need a 5 point torx bit to remove the airbag. Can't remember the size.

I ordered mine from http://www.krewtools.com.au/ part number 301318.

Once the airbag is off, you'll need a 6 point torx - T50 is the size IIRC.

found this out the hardway the other day, mate had his AU round and I wanted to look at the clockspring. Couldn't figure out why my torx bits wern't working, then I looked at it and counted the points...
