You don't pry anything!  The old 5000's had a pry off horn but now 
you are talking about an airbag.  There are 2 holes on the backside 
of the wheel.  Those are access holes to 2 torx bolts.  Remove those 
and the air bag comes off.  I have to do my 1990 200 soon, so I will 
give you a blow by blow of the procedure, if you are willing to wait 
a few days.  It has been so long since I took off the steering wheel 
on a 200 that a lot of the details are missing right now.  Once I 
get into the job, they will all come back.  (:>)
