Question about 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Hi there jwhyrich,
Stop, hold everything, do nothing.
You have not said whether or not it has been deployed or what your goal is here. But one thing I do know is that these devices are dangerous. They don't hit you like a fluffy pillow. Premature deployment of an unanchored airbag can be deadly.
Even if you are extracting a previously deployed airbag and have no intention of replacing it, consider, 'is this the only air bag in the car'?
I will get into how they are removed after my mandatory (imposed by me) list of precautions.
Click here for a list of precautions. Read them. Read them again and take them seriously.
I'll repeat a statement from the link. Taking these precautions does not make them safe, it lets a person handle them with a higher degree of safety.
Now if you've read and understand the precautions, the special tool is a screw driver. Four screws hold it in.
Best regard and be safe
