Cluster Removal Method
I decided on the cluster removal method and had great success. Although, on the first try I did end up with the squeaky steering wheel issued mentioned previously. Be careful when removing the cluster, it's easy for your tool to slip and snag the front plastic covering and crack it.
Also, when you disconnect the battery to remove the airbag, remember to leave it disconnected until all the components are back together or you will end up with the SRS light being on. Additionally, my soft top would only raise to half way. So a window reset was necessary as well. Good Luck!
