How do I remove steering wheel airbag on 2012 Focus?

Title says it all... I didn't see any little holes around back of steering wheel for releasing the airbag. This car has a different design than previous Focus cars as this is a fresh redesign. Anybody know how to remove this thing ???!!! Thanks in advance.

Why would you want to? Also it is technically illegal to do so. You will also throw codes. Just fyi.

Hi eklectic,

I'm glad to hear that your vehicle kept you safe! I would definitely recommend that you swing by your dealership so they can assist. They're in the best position to help out with any of your airbag concerns.

Questions? Shoot me a PM and I'll get you some answers.
