So getting the airbag off the steering wheel is where you're hung up, yes?

Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 4 months ago

Don't be afraid of the airbag. It's extremely unusual for them to just "go off" for no reason.

See the attached procedure, basically you're going to stick a screwdriver into those slots and twist, releasing the spring that holds the airbag on the steering wheel. Hard to explain, once you get one to release, though, you'll have the hang of it, and you'll get the other two.
