If you disconnect the batt and wait about 5 minutes you'll be ok to do anything to the system you need to do. People are so paranoid of the airbags. All you have to do is unhook the battery and wait a few minutes and you'll be fine. I've been into a bunch of air bag steering columns and have never had a problem. It's more dangerous to check circuits under the dash with a test light than it is to remove the bag from the wheel with the batt hooked up. Don't ever probe a yellow loomed harness/connector with a test light! I've removed several bags with the batt hooked up without a problem but I definetely do not recommend it!
