This is the wrong section but here's a link anyway. I believe it's the same steering wheel on an X5 as the e46.

Also, you don't need to unplug the air bag (if you unplug it the air bag light might turn on and you have to go to the dealer to reset it.)

Once the airbag is removed (but not unplugged) you can just wiggle the trim over the airbag.

I did this just a couple weeks ago.
