Jeff,

If the steering wheel got out of control on you then you have damaged the clock spring. Do you need the Air bag steps as well as the clock spring steps?

I did find some info on it but I don't understand how to release the locks on the air bag

Okay I have enclosed the clock spring as well as the drivers side air bag Module in the links below. Be sure to disconnect the Negative battery cable so the Air bag system is de-powered.
