AIR BAG REMOVAL
(1) Open hood.
(2) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
(3) Wait two minutes for the system reserve capacitor to discharge before servicing any airbag components.
(4) Remove upper and lower steering column shrouds to gain access to clock spring wiring
(5) Using a pair of 90 internal snap ring pliers or equivalent, pry open the retaining clip on the back of the steering wheel to release the retaining pin Pull or press rearward (toward driver) on the driver airbag while doing this. The pin will release slightly.
(6) Using a pair of 90 internal snap ring pliers or equivalent, pry open the retaining clip and at the same time gently pry the pin away from the retaining clip, using a pocket screwdriver or equivalent, so it can slide through the middle of the clip. Use the screwdriver to push the pin through the clip.
(7) When the driver airbag releases from the steering wheel, peel rearward and expose the underside of the airbag. Disconnect the two harness connectors, squib and horn feed. Use a small pocket screwdriver to separate horn connector. Insert into the bottom of the connector (airbag side)
and pull handle of screwdriver up while pulling out on the clock spring side of the connector.
(8) Remove airbag from vehicle.

CLOCKSPRING REMOVAL
(1) Place the front road wheels in the straight ahead position. Then:
Rotate the steering wheel half turn (180 degrees) to the right (clockwise).
Lock column with ignition lock cylinder.
...
(5) Remove steering wheel.
(6) Remove upper and lower steering column
shrouds to gain access to clock spring wiring.
(7) Remove multi-function switch.
(8) Disconnect the 7-way connector between the clock spring and the instrument panel wiring harness at the base of the clock spring.
(9) Remove clock spring by lifting the top latch tab up slightly to guide it over the lock housing.
The clock spring cannot be repaired, and must be replaced if faulty.

Here are the instructions for installing aftermarket cruise control. In the instructions it shows how to get the airbag off and the clock spring. Thought this might be helpful as there are pictures showing what you are trying to accomplish with the air bag clips. This is for 01-05.

i kno in my moms pt, some times there is no horn and no dash lights.
some times dash lights and no horn
and horn works and but has no dash lights. i've narrowed it down to the main wiring connector that goes to the steering column.
if i wiggle it or tap the bottom of the steering wheel hard they both work!
