Year and Trim: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE
I have a 1996 Bonneville with the steering wheel controls. the volume has an air bubble on since the gray overlay had a little slice in it. I was trying to take the controls out so I can try and fix or order another one. I got 2 butter knives and slid one on each side and worked it out but when it was almost out all the way but the wires that plug in on the back side are so short and tight I cant get behind to unplug it. Is there any other way to get it unplugged with out messing the wires up. I know there is 2 screws behind the steering wheel but don't know if that holds on the center pad. It has an airbag and don't want to mess it up. Thanks in advance for any help.

Robert

Yes, the center pad and airbag come off when those two screws on the back off the wheel are loosened. Mine are torx head on my '97. I'm always a little nervous around air bags, but just make sure you disconnect the battery and give it a few minutes to ensure the voltage has completely bled off. With the airbag out you'll be able to see all of the wiring for the controls. I don't know why they made the wiring harness so short, but there's not really any slack in it.
