Default Replacing ClockSpring in 2005 Mustang, How difficult to install?

Like the title says, I will be replacing my clockSpring later today due to the horn not working, cruise control not working, and the airbag light flashing (all symptoms of bad clock spring; plus spoke to a buddy who is a Ford Mechanic saying that was probably the issue). Have any of you guys done it? I have read over the Service Manual a few times and looks strait forward. The service department wanted $300 plus for the installation, the part is only $105 so figured it was worth a shot. Anyone know of any write ups? Thanks

Just be sure to dis-connect the battery for a half hour or so and pull the airbag fuse before you start the job. Also, don't point the airbag toward your face. If you have to remove the steering wheel, you're supposed to replace the center bolt. It's a one time use bolt.
