Cruise control switch on column-2003 Outback

The manual I have shows that the air bag comes off first (you'll need a Torx #30 bit for that) and then the top and bottom covers of the steering column. After that the cruise switch assembly is simply two screws and a wiring connector from removal.
As for the scary air bag .... it isn't. Disconnect the battery and then wait 30 minutes for the saved up electrical current that fires the air bags to dissipate. At that point the bags are perfectly safe to mess around with. They can't accidentally fire after that length of time. We do them all of the time at the shop. Good Luck!
