I don't know the answer to this but I do know that improper procedures can trigger the air bag and the potential to cause injury from that is great. I would not take the chance until I knew without a doubt it would not set it off.

from my GMC owners manual

For up to 10 seconds after the ignition is turned off and the battery is disconnected, an airbag can still inflate during improper service. You can be injured if you are close to an airbag when it inflates. Avoid yellow
connectors. They are probably part of the airbag system. Be sure to follow proper service procedures, and make sure the person performing work for you is qualified to do so.
