its not bad. Just remove the small covers on each side of the wheel, undo airbag( remove power from batt first) remove center bolt and your done. (might be a tad few more steps invoved, but its easy).

I did it and it was not that hard. You will probably need a steering wheel puller tool. I borrowed mine from Auto Zone because they loan them out.

Don't forget to correctly align the wheel when you put it on.

I wear my motorcycle helmet when I touch anything airbag related. Dunno if it'll help if it goes off in my face, but I figure it's better than nothing. All you have to do is search youtube for "airbag" to get a reminder of how powerful they are.

Center the wheels BEFORE taking the steering wheel off.

I think they pull off without the steering wheel puller.

Disconnect 12v!!!

My favorite mod
