Air Bag Question

How do I disconnect the explosive device for the air bag on my 1998 Wrangler? I have taken the air bag apart and see the yellow connector but do not know how the connection comes apart. Any advice?

On my 97 TJ, I removed the passanger airbag, from behind the dash, and also removed the airbag module, from under the dash, on the floor, tucked in behind the shifter console. The driver airbag, I just unplugged. Make sure to not damage the clock spring, or the horn won't work.

Why did I type "Why"?

Because you should leave the airbags connected. They're a great safety feature.

Air Bag Disconnect

Control module is corroded, horn does not work and was trying to fix it. I am not sure it would have functioned properly any way as the front bumper is after market and welded in place. I found out that you should ALWAYS disconnect the power supply when working with the air bags. I have removed the corroded module.
Will an after market steering wheel for a 95 model fit a 98 model? I am thinking it will be much easier and cheaper to install an after market wheel and skip the air bag. Thoughts ?
Previous owner took the jeep swimming in the deep end and this is just one more issue I've had to chase.
Thanks for your help!

97 to 06 are TJs. I'm guessing only 97 and 98 are interchangable, as there are differences in many functions when you go to 99. Just a guess.
The bumper shouldn't matter, as near as I can tell, the airbags is triggered by a shock sensor inside the main module, not by bumper sensors.

Must have been a deep swim.
