You need to disconnect battery for at least 15 minutes to prevent the possibility of the air bag going off. Removing wheel is easy enough you need to undo 2 torx bolts in the rear of the wheel to release the airbag centre piece and then just undo the large nut on the centre column. The wheel should then just pull off.

there are 2 holes you need, turn the wheel so the ford logo in the middle is facing to the roof, and locate the 2 torqs bolts you can use an allen key if you desire, and remover the airbag, but remember let the ignition be off for about 20 - 30 mins before hand, as it could go bang in your face and that will hurt
