    there are 2 small holes in the rear of the wheel, get 2 small screwdrivers and poke them in these holes moving from left to right to release the spring's that hold the airbag into place, this is a fiddley job but once right the airbag will just pull forward, once released you can disconect the airbag wires and remove the wheel

    should take no more than 15 mins all in for a first timer

    leave it about 20 mins to de-charge and you will be fine, then like i say around another 15 mins to get it swapped over, iirc it's a t50 torx fixing that hold's the wheel on
