there are two small holes on each side of the wheel, look closely. after disconnecting the battery and waiting for the airbag to discharge take a small, long allen wrench and insert it. you will feel a spring , push in and at the same time pull on the airbag, it will pop out. repeat this on the other side of the airbag. now there are to plugs on the back of the bag, release the safety latches with a small screw driver and pull plugs. the wheel is held to the column ith a large Torx head bolt, not a nut as in most vehicles, Im not sure what size it is but be prepared for this. hope this helps

I can see all sorts of bad things happening here.

I'm curious, what are you doing with the steering wheel?

i'm curious to know how to take it off too...I want to send it in to get the top Carbon fiber from seam to seam, I know over time the sweat from my hand will make the leather go bad and the heat from the sun also. I saw pics of the steering wheel done like this and looks amazing!

The whole wheel and airbag are really easy to take off and put back on. I spent a 1/2 hour trying to figure out how to take out the shifters on the wheel to find out you can just pop off the cheap caps which reveal a cheap xbox like button to shift. It makes it really easy to customize the paddles, and if you screw up it should be pretty cheap to fix.

I take my steering wheel off before I leave the car. It's the best "lo-jack" device around.
