Please discount battery before R&I

All done!

Great photos but the screwdriver in the rear hide hole does not seem to free off the airbag/horn on my 2007 M5 E60, any ideas would be appreciated.

Great DIY post, was nervous tying to install it but the step by step instructions gave me confidence to try it out, very happy to report the install went smooth.

The alcantara wheel feels so much better than the leather one.

Stupid question, but why disconnect the battery?

To stop inadvertent activation of the airbag?
