Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I can not figure out how to get the steering air bag off the steering wheel?
This is not an easy procedure, especially since you've never done it before. With the wheels in the straight ahead position, look at the back of the steering wheel, you'll see two holes. One at 9 o'clock and one at 3 o'clock. You stick a small flat blade screwdriver in the first hole and you pry on the retaining spring while gently pulling on the airbag until it releases. Repeat on the other side. I'm a professional mechanic and the first time I did it, it took me over a half hour to figure it out. Now I can do it in less than a minute. Might want to take it to the dealer.

It also helps to turn the steering wheel 90 degrees in each direction for each clip. there is more room to work with without the dash in your way
