yeah the book says you have to disarm and remove the air bag and the entire steering wheel, the lock and part of the post from the universal joint.
If you aren't sure about all this you should probably buy the service manual or get a subscription to ALLDATA DIY
to show you how to do it. I think you'll also need to do some re-setting by computer if your car has dynamic stability control (setting the steering wheel angle).
I don't think this work is technically difficult but you have to know what to do.
