DIY removing 128I steering wheel airbag & dash airbag HELP!!!

I recently got into an accident with my 128I, all has been fixed and modules have been reset. I tried looking everywhere for help on how I can remove the steering wheel airbag and the dash with airbag. If anyone can please advice some tips or knows how to do it and can explain it. I have also tried looking for someone in the Toronto area to do it, but havn't seemed to find anyone for a reasonable price. Any help would be much appreciated thank you!

alright so the one in the steering wheel you are going to want to take a screwdriver and you can stick it in the steering wheel on the sides, and basically the air bag is held in by a clip on each side. you are going to feel a little resistance when you hit the clip just right. then pull the airbag out a little then do it to the other side and you will be able to pull it out. for the one on the passenger side you are going to have to remove the glove box to get too. i can post pictures to help you when my car get delivered
