Steering wheel/Airbag removal

Just curious if anyone has the know-how to remove the lower trim and airbag for F10 steering wheels? I have an M Sport wheel that I was wanting to put on, but these wheels seem a bit different than the other DIY articles for retrofitting. Thanks in advance!

Anyone know how to release the airbag? It is unlike any older models with the DIY online. I think I can figure the rest out but the airbag release has got me perplexed. Thank you again!

There was a forum member who bought an F10 that was in an accident as a project car. He had to replace the air bag as I recall. I did a quick search for the post, but couldn't find it. It was here or on bimmerpost. If you can find it, that individual proabably could help. Don't have time this morning, but if you don't get a response from anyone, I can look later tonight. If I reacall I think it was a 535 and he and his father were going to fix. It was in a front end collision and air bag had released.

So what I found out was, unless you are very skilled probably going to BMW is the best thing. Takes about 30 min. However, the BMW gods must have not wanted me to have it because I made an appt this weekend to get it on, got a leak in my roof and need to have it replaced. So I pulled the appointment and need to sell the wheel It is in the classifieds forum if anyone is interested now.
