Removing Steering wheel 97 S-Truck??

I am currently rebuilding my latest Ebay purchase. A stolen and recovered Blazer. The steering column has seen better days and I have another one to replace the original with.

HOW do you get the Horn/Air bag assembly out of the steering wheel?? I took the screws out of the back and they only hold on the plastic trim. The bag/horn seems to have four pegs sticking out that go into four retaining holes. Do I need a special Tool??

My repair book says to take it to a qualified technician.. I am one ( or used to be!!) I thought. Just never messed around with late model steering/airbag stuff!

i had to remove and install one on my 99 s10, not fun to do but you gotta remove trim then you disconnect air bag, make sure to unplug battery and wait a little or bag might blow, takes only 1.5volts to set it off lol. there will be nuts on back of steering wheel that hold air bag assembly on. make sure you set clock spring correct way too when installing it back on so make sure you make diagram how it goes, its no fun thats why i like only bodywork/paintwork but was learned how to do that electric stuff too
