Steering wheel removal? Slits for airbag covered

The slits for the airbag are covered in vinyl unless I'm looking/feeling the wrong spot. I'd hate to puncture a hole in it.

Just feel for the unmistakeable dent with your fingers. There will be a precut slit there

Is that the dent you are referring to? There is no slit in it, I'd have to make one

There actually is a slit already made. Just put the screw driver on the intention and it will open up. I swapped out my steering wheel today and wondered the same thing.

The slit is there, but it's well camouflaged. Just put the screwdriver thru it gently
