you can't just snap off the cover.

1. disconnect the battery
2. remove the airbag (search for DIY, there's one for ZSP steering wheel removal, and one for non-ZSP sttering wheel removal)
3. remove the steering wheel
4. turn it over and locate the screws that screw in the steering wheel trim
5. replace trim

you should grip your sterring wheels at 10 and 2. or 9 and 3. Not at 12. so it really shouldn't matter.
