The drivers airbag requires a special tool from Cadillac to remove, J44298. You can likely make your own, but there is a proper tool :)

1. Turn your steering wheel upside down, unhook your battery, wait 10 minutes.

Use the special tool to release the bag as follows:

  1. Position the steering wheel so that 2 of the openings are at the top.
  2. Adjust and install J 44298 into the 2 holes.
  3. Push the handle back towards I/P, releasing the 2 spring-loaded retainers at the same time. IMPORTANT: Seat the air bag removal tool fully in the openings.
  4. Position the steering wheel in order to access the 2 remaining openings at the top.
  5. Push the handle back towards the I/P in order to release the 2 remaining spring-loaded retainers at the same time.
  6. Pull the driver inflator module gently away from the steering wheel.
  1. Remove the connector position assurance (CPA) from the electrical connector. IMPORTANT: Note the driver inflator wire routing positions and the horn wire routing positions for the correct re-assembly.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connector (4) from the driver inflator module.
  3. Disconnect the horn electrical connector (2).
  4. Remove the steering wheel module (5).

Sensors are in bumpers, when the light is on for air bags they are disabled to prevent false deployment. If you have complete ins. coverage the car may be covered.
