Steering wheel air bag removal

Ok, I need to remove the steering wheel in order to dig deeper into the column to tighten the tilt column screws (done this many times on other GM vehicles) but need to double check the procedure for disabling the SIR system. According to the FSM I need to remove the air bag fuse, then disconnect both the yellow SIR connectors at the lower end of the column then I can proceed with removal of the air bag correct?

Remove the fuse, wait one minute, remove the airbag from the steering wheel, and disconnect the yellow connector behind the air bag. You can then dig into the column. No need to disconnect the wires under the dash.
