Thats a non sports package wheel, right? I believe it's as "simple" as removing the steering wheel, and unscrewing the whole piece from the back. Look up any posts on replacing the steering wheel and you'll see how others have done it.

Just looked behind the wheel where the screw should be and there is nothing behind the wheel that shows its holding the cover. Is it just clips?

On a Sport wheel there are (3) Torx screws that hold the trim on from behind the wheel - (1) at each of the wheel spokes.

Not sure how that trim comes off on your Non-Sport...
