Help with steering wheel trim removal

Can someone tell me how to remove the screws holding in the steering wheel trim? I removed the airbag, then 3 screws are pretty accessible but two others seem impossible to get to. I have a dct car and removed the paddles but still no luck. Thx!

Since the air bag is off, take off the center nut & pull the wheel. Easier to work on that way.

Can this be done without removing the air bag?

Yes. Just takes a little more skill. Taking out the airbag is very simple though.
