I am trying to remove my airbag from an '06 crew cab. my steerig wheen is woobling and i want to make sure the nut is on tight, but some how i can't get the airbag off. i pushed on the spring clip under the steering wheel. the bottom of the airbag pops up a but but thats about it. it feels like it still is stuck on something. i even tried pushing on the clip while pulling on the airbag and nothing. any help will be appreciated. thanks.

REMOVAL
CAUTION:
-Do not attempt to repair or replace damaged direct-connect SRS component connectors. If a driver air bag direct-connect harness connector is damaged, the spiral cable must be replaced.
-Before servicing the SRS, turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect both battery cables and wait at least 3 minutes.
-When servicing the SRS, do not work from directly in front of air bag module.


1. Disconnect both the negative and positive battery cables, then wait at least 3 minutes.
2. Locate retaining clip access hole and insert suitable 4mm - 6mm blunt tool.

CAUTION:
Do not use sharp edged objects such as screwdrivers to release driver air bag module from steering wheel, SRS components may be unintentionally damaged.

3. Press upward (toward center of steering wheel) on retaining clip until driver air bag module is released from steering wheel.
4. Lift the driver air bag module from the steering wheel.
5. Disconnect the driver air bag module and horn connectors, then remove the driver air bag module.

Thanks Ryan B. I followed those instructions earlier, I read when you press on the retaining clip the air bag is suppose to pop off, but this does not happen to mines. I don't know what i am doing wrong, or if there is another clip somewhere.

how do you unplug the airbag module without breaking the plugs? do i unplug it from the clock spring or from the module itself (orange and yellow plugs) the two on the back of the module itself have been plastic welding into place
