Ok. Here are the instructions.
Rotate the steering wheel one half turn to the right to access the steering wheel inflator module screws.
Important: The new SIR coil will be pre-centered. Do not remove the centering tab from the new SIR coil until the installation is complete. If the SIR coil does not come with a centering tab, you must center the SIR coil.

i want to know the instuctions you sent is the the key to start the car on the stering wheel or on the dash in front of the stering wheel
WE STARTED TO WORK ON THE CAR AND WERE ALREADY STUCK.I CAN NOT REMOVE THE TOP OF THE STERING WHEEL WHERE THE EMBLEM IS.WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?PLEASE HELP.
If you are referring to the drivers air bag itself, in the middle of the steering wheel, here is the portion of the instructions I sent you that covered that.
To remove the inflatable restraint steering wheel module:
WE TOOK OUT THE MODULE SCREWS (2 OF THEM) BUT THE STERING STILL DOES NOT WANT TO COME OUT.WHATS WRONG THAT IT DOES'NT COME OFF
(THE STERING WHEEL)
WE ARE DOING AS INSTUCTED BUT WE STILL CAN"T PULL OFF THE RESTRAINT STEERING WHEEL MODULE. ALSO COULD YOU SEND US THAT LAST PICTURE LIKE YOU SENT US THE OTHERS SO WE CAN PRINT IT TO BE ABLE TO SEE IT BETTER THE WAY IT IS NOW IS TO SMALL TO SEE.ALL THE OTHER PICTURES WE WERE ABLE TO PRINT BUT NOT THIS LAST ONE.
DO I HAVE TO PULL THE STEERING WHEEL MODULE OR IS IT SUPPOSE TO COME OUT VERY EASY?
Once you have the screws out, the steering wheel module should just pull off. The screws you removed, were the on the back side and easy to get at, or were they back in the trim and hidden? Also, post the VIN of your car.
Ok. That explains everything. You do not have a classic malibu, yours is the new style. There is a special tool for releasing the air bag. You might be able to use 2 flat blade screwdrivers. Install those 2 screws. Place the steering wheel at 3:00 and place each screwdriver in the slot as shown below. Lift on the screw drives. This system uses a spring and hooks. The blade of the screw driver will catch on the spring and when you pry, if you have it placed correctly, the one end should pop out 1/4 inch or so. Then rotate the steering wheel to the 9:00 and do the same.
