Yes, there are two screws at the back of the steering wheel. You can loosen but not remove them completely. The T30 socket is about three inches long. Once they are loose, pull the airbag assembly out and disconnect the wire (store the airbag right side up in case of accidental deployment. Then take a 10mm allen and a breaker bar (1/2") and remove the wheel but don't forget to matchmark the wheel and the hub so when you put it all back together it's lined up correctly. Change the CC switch and re-assemble everything in reverse order, re-connect the airbag and tighten the two screws at the back of the wheel. Good luck!
