2006 Mustang GT...How hard to change the steering wheel?

I have been debating myself for about 6 months whether or not to buy an upgraded leather wrapped steering wheel to replace my stock semi-hard plastic/rubber wheel. Has anyone done this switch?

How hard is it to pull the airbag out of the existing wheel and put it into the new replacement? I would really like to avoid doing something that would cause the airbag to deploy!

Do you think it is even worth the swap? let me hear what you think...

It's doable... Just need to disable the SRS before you mess with it.

yep, same material...its kind of an unforgivable hard plastic. My original shifter was made out of the same material and it was kinda agonizing to drive/shift with, so I bought the upgraded shifter and now I love to drive it. The shifter feels sooo smooth and doesn't get nearly as hot as the original. My hopes are about the same for the new wheel!
