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

How to remove steering wheel, 2000 blazer


Parts stores sell an inexpensive steering wheel removal puller. Follow repair manual removal procedure, so the air bag doesn't activate. The steering wheel is retained by a large nut on the steering wheel shaft. Remove the nut, and attach the puller to wheel-it should pull right off.

How do you remove the steering wheel on a 2000 Chevy Silverado?


Hi there,

Reach behind, there are 4 screws. Remove these screws and pull of air bag assembly. Make sure negative battery cable has been disconnected for 10 minutes and SRS fuse has been pulled. Once the air bag assembly is off, pull the horn wire off, then remove steering wheel nut and washer and pull of the wheel.

Good luck...

This first post is WITH AN AIR BAG:



With Air Bag Before removing the steering wheel, disable the air bag system
Disarming the System To disarm the air bag system, simply disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Isolate the battery cable by taping up any exposed metal areas of the cable. This will keep the cable from accidentally contacting the battery and causing deployment of the air bag. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, although 10 minutes is recommended, to allow for the dissipation of any residual energy.

CAUTION Before removing the steering wheel, disable the air bag system (refer to Section 6). Failure to do so could result in accidental air bag deployment and possible injury.


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and disable the air bag system.
  2. Set the front tires in a straight-ahead position.

  3. If equipped, remove the cruise control switch.

  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut.
  6. Scribe a line mark on the steering wheel and steering shaft if there is not one already.

Cant figure out how to remove the steering wheel and air bag in i


disconnect negitive battery cable. Remove screws holding air bag to steer wheel. Disconect wires to air bag being. I must stop now. Playing with air bags can result in injury or death. You should have a shop do that for you. Sorry for not helping.

Remove d/s airbag


disconnect the battery, then find the air bag plug normally under the seat or around side of the seat, maybe under the carpet *bright orange cable*

once you have disconnected the battery and the cable start taking the steering wheel apart and remove it, after market steering wheel will be needed unless your just going to cut the air back out and re fit the wheel, do not connect the air bag cable, you will have a dash light on the dash for air bag doing this though.
