Be careful with the 2 torx security bolts on the steering column. They can strip easily because they are locktited in. I warmed mine up with a sodering iron tip to try to loosen the loctite.

The Acute guide is really good but here's another look at the red and yellow connectors and how you need to pry the rears up to get the black clips to pop up.

I attached it as well in case the link still isn't working for you. Hopefully your steering wheel isn't off centered afterwards like my Mines wheel was...

Also, I recommend you tape off or cover the front trim on the steering wheel (the faceplate surrounding the buttons) to avoid scratching.

Regarding making sure the wheel is straight on reinstall, make sure your steering wheel is dead straight before you remove it, that way you can line up the new one perfectly.

Those bolts are so tight that I ended it up getting new ones from the dealer as they broke, so if I where you I would get new ones before you start.
