    Remove your airbag and tighten the torx bolt up underneath.

    a small flat bladed screw driver is needed, check if there is a how2 as it can be a pain in the @rse and another time dead easy. Which I could explain but not good, think its best done with a video!

    turn the steering wheel a quarter turn, then feel round the back. you should feel two small holes top and bottom. you need a small flat blade screwdriver (not too small).
    wiggle it about. from memory its more towards the steering column that you need to move the screwdriver head towards. Hold the airbag and pull it out when you see it move.

    REMEMBER TO DISCONNECT BATTERY FOR ABOUT 20MINS

    fairly un funny one at that too..

    anyone attempting anything involving the airbags MUST disconnect the battery on the car and walk away for 15mins to allow the firing capacitors to leak down..
