is it hard to take steering wheel off without airbag going off? Just was able to look at this vehile tonight.

I apologize for the delay as I was offline the last couple of days.

Here is the procedure for steering wheel removal.If your horn pad on your model here has the actual air bag in it let me know.Usually you want to disconnect the battery when removing the air bag and make sure you have no static electricity around as well and handle it with care.

1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
2. Remove steering wheel shroud attaching screws, if equipped, from underside of steering wheel.
3. Remove cap or lift steering wheel shroud and horn contact lead assembly from steering wheel.
4. Remove retainer, then the steering wheel nut. Mark relationship of steering wheel to steering shaft.
5. Remove steering wheel using puller tool No. J-1859-03, or equivalent.
6. Reverse procedure to install.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time,this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5 star rating is appreciated
