I also pulled my airbag and had an issue at first... It is because there is a third clip on the bottom of the airbag. There is a hole that looks just like the ones on the side, and you just push the rod towards the middle of the steering wheel, just like you do through the holes on the sides.
Also... The fuses, all three, are for the horn according to the diagram on the back of the fuse box cover. None of them are for the airbag. With that said, i dont think it would matter much. People pound and lean on their horns in road rage, that's not what would set them off. Unless you short a wire or something, you should be fine. I would be more focused on making sure you support the airbag as you release it and pull it out so you dont damage the wires/connectors in the back.
To the OP: THANK YOU for the write-up, helped alot in wrapping the trim piece underneath the airbag :-D

just looked in the owner's manual... fuse 47, the blue 15amp fuse all by itself in the top left corner of the pic in the OP, That is the main Air-bag fuse... just a FYI.

I only recommend removing all said fuses for safety and the more than likely occurrence of accidentally unwanted honking of the horn.

Is there is fuse for each airbag? I m wondering how can you disable the driver seat airbag or by pass it without effecting others.

@Synack: Regarding the picture below and instructions to "push that pin inwards of the steering wheel, while simultaneously pulling the airbag. Do this to each pin on both sides and pull the airbag out, it is semi-difficult."



Is that saying one side can be pulled at a time or do both sides need to be pulled while simultaneously pushing the pins on both sides? Also "it will open the hole above to allow the release of the airbag." What is meant by "open the hole"... am I supposed to be doing something with the top holes? I thought I'm supposed to be pulling on the airbag while pushing the pin in the lower holes.

Lastly, when reinstalling the steering wheel, is recalibration of the steering position necessary? That's what a Subaru service rep told me but I'm not sure if that would be true for this car since it looks like the wheel bolts into a set place with no room for play/adjustment.

If you disconnect the battery ..... wouldn't that just shut everything down?

Did anyone happen to snap a picture of the back of the airbag cover without the airbag in place?

I just did this about an hour ago -- it's a cinch (I did this to install a new stalk for my fog lights)

Here are some pitfalls -- This is just a summary of what I read here and my experience - for pictures reference OP's pictures

1 - When you are attempting to take out the air bag, be extra careful not to snap anything (as far as plastics go).

2 - Forget the fuse, easier to disconnect the battery (the white fuse for the horn is the worse to take out and I gave up after screwing up my index finger (I don't have the tool to remove fuses).

2a. - If you are going to go with the route and remove the fuse, DON'T, it'll be a pain.
Here are the fuses you need to take out INCLUDING the 3 with the horns) -- FUSE 47, and 35 (look it up on the owner's manual). SRS air bag system is 47 , SRS Air Bag system and Ignition is 35 -- Do not attempt to do this without removing those two at the very least (again, I'd just take the time to reprogram everything and just remove the Negative from the battery.

3 - There are only 3 holes near the steering wheel: Left, Right, Underneath. Before you begin poking the holes to release the air bag, I find it easier to lower the steering wheel all the way down and pull the wheel all the way out so you have room to look at the holes. When you begin, make sure that you press straight in, do not poke it like you're jamming something in hard, but moderate pressure is needed. Position of the screw driver should be horizontal (0 or 180 degrees; position: -- ). (The bottom hole, your screw driver should be at 90 degrees when pushing up; position | ) Also the pin underneath is easily pushed above the bracket. Make sure that you don't push too hard where the metal pin gets thrown out of it's place, difficult to get back in.

3a. - Do not pry the airbag open, each side when you push the pin, the airbag will pop out of place and not fall back in unless you push it -- Do not fret about it. It WILL not fall back in, unless you push against the airbag. The airbag will not fall off of the steering wheel either, so don't worry about that.

4 -Once the air bag is pulled out (slowly and carefully I might add), I suggest using a flat head screwdriver that is for precision devices, wrap it with some painters tape and try to wiggle it between the orange and yellow tab. Once the tabs are popped pull the connector straight up and out, do not bend the pins!

5 - On the airbag itself there's a blue wire with a spade. The spade has a notch on it, do not just pull it out, press on the notch to release the lock and then pull out -- you can risk ripping the wire apart since it's so flimsy

6 - once the airbag is detached you're good to go to do either the stalk install or whatever mod you need.

If anyone is in the bay area that wants to get this done, Hit me up -- I'll help guide you through this. EASY PEASY!

I got roughly 2 3/8 by 1 7/8 inch if I remember correctly. I'm going crazy looking for a emblem that fits the steering wheel right now.

These seem to be the right size. I went ahead and ordered one. The description says the seller has a box of them and they're used with light scratches. I figure that if mine isn't acceptable, I'll just plasti-dip it.

Awesome, thanks for the link. Let us know if it fits perfectly, without having to do any trimming to the airbag cover material to make it fit.

I got lucky and mine was perfect, like new. I sanded down the grooves where the old Scion logo used to go, then cut out a piece of red cardboard that was laminated and glued it to the back of the emblem. Glued it in place(using a hot glue gun, so it's reversable) and I think it looks pretty professional if I must say so myself. I think I might go for a little darker red if anything.

The emblem is maybe a fraction of an inch bigger, but it's hard to tell. I trashed the stock emblem upon removal and threw it away, so couldn't compare.

That looks great! Killer job bud. Where'd you find the red laminated cardboard? Think we can get another shot of it dead on from the driver's seat?

Is there any way to have a adapter hub installed while retaining the original steering wheel and thus airbag, so the steering wheel can be pulled closer to the driver?

I want to see an Alcantara air bag cover stitched where it is on the 86 air bag in red stitching. I think it would look wonderful. Then obviously some sort of emblem in the center of that. Hmmm maybe I will have a project one day.
