Check the DIY section. There are plenty of write ups on how to remove the trim.

You need to pop the airbag off to get those off. Access holes for the airbag release is on the back side of the steering wheel. One on each side. If the bag's never been removed before, the holes will be covered by the fabric. Feel for the depressions and pierce the fabric with a screw driver and push in the release the airbag.

So do I need to unplug the airbag so it doesn't deploy?or just unhook the battery? Is this even worth the hassle? I seen the diy for removing the steering wheel and it looks like a pain.

I always unhook the battery whenever I mess around with the steering wheel. It is a bit of a hassle the first time. Once you get use to the whole finding the sweet spot for taking out the air bag, it should be a simple job.

Follow the DIY. First step is to disconnect the battery! Airbag won't deploy since there's no electricity. Unplug the airbag once you've released the clips that hold it in place. There are 2 plugs. Yes, finding the correct angle with the screw driver to release the clips can be a bit of a pain, but it's really a simple project I wouldn't hesitate to do again.
