How to remove steering wheel

I have a steering wheel with the bluetooth/sync only and want to change it with the one with cruise control on the left side and bluetooth/sync on the right side. Does anyone know how to remove the steering wheel with pictures?

I don't think he was asking about the warranty...he was looking to figure out how to remove the steering wheel!

Don't do this. Seriously. It's not worth the cost and the danger of having an airbag explode in your face. Those things need programming too from my understanding, so mucking with one could cause all sorts of other problems with the other airbags in your car. If it matters that much to you pay for a professional (who specializes in airbags)to replace the wheel for you, or live without it.

^What he said. I believe there's a cruise control thread and someone had the dealer replace their steering wheel and the airbag still went off. You'd be in quite the pickle if that happened to you doing it by yourself!

Switching out my steering wheel did not void my warranty. If might be because I had the dealership do it.

I had the dealer replace my steering wheel with the one with cruise. All is good now. Thanks for the responses.

$85 for the steering wheel (savage yard) and $75 to have it installed and cruise turned on.
