    Assuming that you are talking about the air bag in the steering wheel, not the one in the roof or the seat:

    Pop out the cover on each side of the steering wheel. Loosen the exposed T-30 Torx screw. The screw is held by a small plastic piece so that it doesn't fall out. Don't remove it, just loosen it until it just hangs there.

    Pull the center of the steering wheel straight out.

    Be sure to take all appropriate precautions for handling an explosive device.
