Multifunction Switch Removal and Replacement

Found this "how to" link...
http://www.v8sho.com/SHO/MultifunctionSwitchR&R.htm
Even though it's from an SHO site, would your concensus be that this is
correct procedure for a '96 Tauraus wagon as well?
Would there be any need to disarm the airbag while performing this procedure?
Thanks...
