Disconnect the battery and unplug them. There is a air bag module under and near the front of the console. I did mine with no problems.

I read somewhere too that you may want to wait a few minutes after disconnecting the battery. Something about a built up charge the system keeps so that the airbags can still fire if the current is cut. I could be totally off here, but it wouldn't hurt to do it anyway.

You are correct Mr. Lewis. You told me that when I did mine. I waited about an hour to be safe.

Wait a minute. Consider the source. If I told you that, it doesn't make it right. :D
