    I'm getting a rattling sound coming from the passenger side dash. I'm thinking there might be a loose screw inside the pass side dash. How does the passenger side air bag come off? Does it come off by slowly prying on it?

    open the glove box, push the sides in to open it past it's stops. Remove the 2 nuts holding it in place. Look up from the underside, and you will see the bolts that hold the air bag in. Remove them and it will slide out the front and unplug.

    make sure you disconnect the battery before you go unplugging it, there have been cases of them activating when they had power

    I'm sure that would work, but it would be easier just to pull the two fuses used by the air bag system.
