It aint hard, BUT the air bag lite will go on and you wont pass inspection like that + you would be less protected in the event of an accident, DONT

If you are removing it to make a repair, disconnect the battery and wait 5 minutes for the airbag system to discharge. The system has a power reserve so that if the battery is disabled in a collision the airbag will still deploy. There should be screws on the back of the steering wheel. Remove them and remove the airbag module. Carry it with the front of the module facing away from you and place it on a solid surface, away from anything else. Keep in mind that if you intend to permanently remove the airbag it is a violation of Federal Law to do so. Knowingly disabling the system is a violation of the same Federal Law. HTH. -Jim
