Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
This may not be what you want to 'hear'.
I advise you to STOP!
The force of one of these airbags deploying, can easily break your neck, or remove parts of your head!
I know how that sounds coming from a stranger, but most of all I wish you to be SAFE!
MANY mechanics have made a fatal mistake when removing an airbag. All it takes is one small static spark, and the bag will deploy.
The bag deploys so fast, you won't Even have time to respond, and get out of the way!
The metal bracket of the air bag must be faced away from you, you should wear an ESD wrist strap, (And have it connected to a good ground), the bag must be held in a certain position when installing, and there is criteria to meet with the car, (Battery, connections for the air bag deploy switch, etc.), also.
Airbag's are already deployed? What about the new ones you will install? Please, leave this to a pro.
Thank you for letting me state this.

To disable them,unplug the plugs after the battery has been disconnected for 2 minutes to avoid deployment. if you physically want to remove them,that is different,the one on the passenger side is part of the dash,a thin plastic line ruptures upon deployment and the airbag inflates.
the drivers airbag is disabled by the yellow connector at the bottom of the steering column
