Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait one minute for airbag backup power supply to be depleted. 2. Remove the two hinge-to-instrument panel screws and remove the glove compartment. 3. Remove the passenger airbag module. WARNING: When carrying a live air bag, make sure the bag and trim cover are pointed away from your body.
