Unhappy Steering wheel removal...Need HELP!!

So I attempted to swap the steering wheel from my other E36 into my new one (since the old one is MUCH nicer and 3-spoke), but I ran into one snag. On my newer E36, with the 4 spoke steering wheel, I can't figure out how to unhook the airbag wire from the wheel itself! I got it unhooked from the airbag, but it's attached to the main shaft AND weaved through the wheel itself! Does anyone know how I can remove this without cutting the wire itself?? I sat there for 30mins and couldn't figure it out. What am I missing here?

Here's a pic of the steering wheel I'm having trouble removing in case you can help if you've done it before...

oh I the only one who absolutely HATES removing the cover from that style of steering wheel? I had to use a dental mirror just to see what size torx bit to use! what a pain in the ass!
