disconnect batteries and wait for about 5 minutes to disable batteries. There should be 4 plastic covers that just get unsnapped to reveal 4 nuts. Remove the nuts and the center airbag should pop out with 2 connectors. There is a larger nut at the center of the wheel that holds the actual wheel on. remove that and pull the wheel off with a steering wheel puller.

ok, thanks. waiting for 5 minutes, does the airbag hold a battery reserve? or is that to be extra cautious?

00 - 04 F150 F250 F350 KR Black Leather Steering Wheel : eBay Motors (item 300406520692 end time Apr-12-10 12:55:01 PDT)

heres a link to the guy on ebay that redos these wheels. he has several different styles. this one in particular is what i will probably get. it will be an interesting three color combo, with my brown steering colum and airbag cover. i did ask if he was able to make that in 99 chocolate brown, but he offered to make one in total king ranch leather... you do get a refund if you send in your old wheel for a core, so the price will be a little lower. fyi
