    firstly, disconnect the battery on the car for at least 20 mins before doing anything on the airbag, this will give the firing capacitiors change to leak back down and make removal safer..then you will find the fixings you need on the back of the steering wheel torx screws for the audio controls,and a flatblade screwdriver to release the clips for the airbag..
