Ignition off. Disconnect the battery negative cable. See: . Warning! For information about the handling and storage of pyrotechnical SRS components, see: Handling non-deployed SRS-components . Note! Replace the decals for the safety equipment. See: Decals for safety equipment (North America) or: Decals for safety equipment (rest of the world). Warning!

There is a risk of the seat belt tensioner deploying. Warning! Pyrotechnical SRS components must never be taken apart, repaired or transferred to another vehicle.
Removal
Removing driver's airbag (SRS)
Ignition in position II. Turn the steering wheel a ¼ turn so that the two holes on the rear of the steering wheel are accessible.
Insert a screwdriver in the holes on the reverse of the steering wheel. The screwdriver must be at a right-angle to the rear surface of the steering wheel. Place the screwdriver point against the top of the spring clip as illustrated. Pry the screwdriver up against the upper edge of the hole (2) so that the point of the screwdriver presses down the catch (1) until the catch releases. Turn the steering wheel a ½ turn in the opposite direction. Repeat the process on the other side. Turn the steering wheel to the neutral position. Fold out the airbag.
Disconnect the 2 connectors (2) (there may be more or less) for the SRS ignition cables for the airbag. Remove the airbag.
