This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to follow these instructions may result in accidental airbag deployment and possible serious or fatal injury.

  2.  
  3. Remove the console bezel (1) and place it on a workbench.
    NOTE
    Do not pry out on the top of the bezel. The top of the bezel is secured into place by molded U-Clips.
