Airbag removal tool(s)?

I will be swapping out the Black airbag for a Red one - '08 987 S with the "Sport" (round center) steering wheel. What tool(s) do I need?

I undertstand that all I need to do is disconnect the battery, unscrew it (with what exactly), unplug it, and pop it out.

I am not the mechanical type but I think I can take out a couple screws (fingers crossed) if I know exactly what I need...don't want to go to the dealer if possible.

Thanks in advance...Bob Z.

On the earlier cars you need a Torx T-30 bit (plus a Phillips Screwdriver and such), not sure if this carries over to the later ones or not.
