Bravo Steering Wheel Air Bag Removal

Hi,
I have searched the the threads on the forum relating to removing the airbag from a Bravo 2, but I'm struggling to do it with my daughters car.
First off, it appears that 2 different types can be fitted and the retaining mechanisms are different. My car has the 2 dimples on the back of the wheel and I have drilled/pushed through these but all I can feel is what i presume is the plastic surround of the airbag case. I cant detect any clips to push no matter what angle I put the torx driver I'm using. I removed the trim to try to access the clips from the rear of the wheel but it's sealed, so no access. I'm presuming that I don't have to drill through the airbag case to get to the clips?
Perhaps its the 'other' type of bag that's fitted but I haven't been able to find any info on how to remove that type. The car is a may 2009 build BTW.
Any advice is most appreciated.

Re: Bravo Steering Wheel Air Bag Removal

I've recently removed my steering wheel on my 2009 Bravo.

The Bravo has a different airbag attachment compared to the GP.
Watch this video a few times, it shows exactly the mounts and the procedure:

Even knowing how, it's still difficult to remove it the first few times.

Re: Bravo Steering Wheel Air Bag Removal

Well, Success. Not the easiest to remove it, but managed.
Thanks once again for pointing me to the video.
It's not absolutely obvious how it fits, but for anyone needing to put it back, it pushes back into place - two hands on the airbag and a firm push.
Cheers.
