Not sure on a step by step. But I can give you a potentially life saving tip.

Turn your side lights on, disconnect the battery and wait 30 mins for the charge in the airbag to discharge before doing anything ! You would want the airbag to go off in your face

Oh and make sure you have your radio code before disconnecting the battery.

Turning the side lights on helps to stop spikes / surges getting to your dash cluster / clocks and potentially damaging them.
