Passenger air bag control removal

Anybody know how to remove this? I want to relocate it so I can mount my fuel pressure gauge and vacuum gauge in that location. Thanks!

Pop the outer covering down (whats wrapped around the switch and probably has a little shelf or ashtray). Then remove the three 7m screws. One in the middle toward you and two in the back. Then you can drop this piece down and remove the two Phillips screws to swing the switch loose.

I just dismounted the unit itself from that dash piece from the back side, tucked it up in the dash and called it good. That's where I have my tank pressure gauge for the air in my toolbox. Works awesome.

I actually took apart the module so only the circuit board is up in the dash. Then before I tucked it up there, I electrical taped it to seal it off from anything metal up under the dash.
