to get the passenger out just lower the glove box and there are screws under there and it should come right out. as for the steering wheel there is a bolt on each side that you remove and it slides right out.

when connecting or disconnecting the airbags, make sure you hold them at a right angle to your face and body so that if something DOES go wrong, you minimize the damage to yourself.

The passenger airbag comes out by lowering the glovebox and then 2 10mm bolts hold it in. The driver's side is removed by pulling the little covers on either side of the steering wheel and then removing those bolts. Afterwards the airbag slides right out.

The control unit is located under the little floor console on the transmission hump. remove that and you should be able to find it.
