Removing the airbag
Here are a couple of pictures to help you remove the airbag. In the front view picture you'll see two aluminum hooks each pointing in toward the center. The spring loaded clips that hold the airbag on hook behind these. You need to move those clips out in toward the center by sticking a pick in from the back of the steering wheel. The second picture shows this. Turn your wheel 90 degrees, stick the pic in the circular detent shown and slide it along the inside of the channel to the end, then pry toward the center of the wheel to release the clip. Pull the airbag gently toward you. Now turn the wheel 180 degrees in the other direction and do the same on the other side. Disconnect the battery and let your car sit for a couple minutes before you disconnect the airbag. You need to use your fingernails to pull out the retaining clip on the two plugs. They only pull out a few millimeters and are retained in the plug. You can't mix the plugs up when you plug them back into your airbag. Don't jam them. Also pull the two wires (purple and black shown) connected to the horn off gently. The two spades on the airbag are different sizes. Wires from the new wheel will plug into those. You can't mix those up either. When you plug it all back in, just center the airbag and push it back on. You will hear the two retaining clips click back into place.
