You got to realize that disabling the airbag is illegal, so if the car needs a safety inspection, you're SOL...

Firstly, you should disconnect your battery as you will be dealing with the airbag. This has been stressed in many posts before, you do not want that thing to blow up while you're handling it.
You can get hurt, or damage the interior of your car in the process.
There are two Torx T30 screws in the back side of the steering wheel (left and right) holding the airbag to the steering wheel.
After removing them you should be able to gently pull the airbag towards you just enough to see the connections in the back. Don't yank the airbag as you might break the connectors.
The airbag has two locking connectors. Remove the left one first and then right one. The airbag is now out.
Now just remove the nut securing the steering wheel to the dashboard and you're set!

Now i'ts only a matter of installing your new hardware.

Like Giltibo said, keep in mind it is illegal to remove safety equipment from your vehicle for public road use. And that's checked during your country/state's regular safety inspection.
This brief explanation is only here to help you do it by yourself, but always keep in mind that you're responsible for what you do to your vehicle.

Cheers!
