My interest is piqued. Is the air bag assembly all contained in the cover? (The visible part of the front of the steering wheel?)
I honestly haven't studied my steering wheel that closely. I'll try to do so this evening to get a better understanding.
Bills - if it's "dented" it isn't plastic, or at least not solid plastic. That would have cracked if anything. 2.4 mentions above that it's metal but that concerns me also. As I'm sure everyone is aware (or maybe not if you're lucky) of the incredible acceleration and forces that an air bag exerts. I'm sure the mfr has tested the snot out of emblems and attachment methods to prevent creating a missile that would enter someone's skull in an accident.
Then again, a lot of these covers are design to "flip" away during detonation so maybe it is possible to get in behind it to release the badge.
