can I R&R my airbag myself?

Hi all

my heated steering wheel is being flaky even after charging the battery - it seems to consistently fail on cold mornings. I was going to try replacing the module as described here:

however before I dug right in I wanted to ask, how does one remove the airbag from the steering wheel? (sport wheel if it makes a difference.) If I do that will I have a persistent light that needs to be reset by the dealership?

I was hoping to be able to do it myself because I would like to try to refinish the wheel trim at the same time if I can find a used piece of trim, either spray it matte black, plasti-dip it or maybe wrap it. Hate that peely rubbery stuff!

thanks much!
