Unlock steering with battery disconnected

Does anyone know if you a can unlock the steering column with the battery disconnected.

I need to rotate it to remove the airbag but need battery disconnected as well.

Well it must not lock the steering if the battery gets destroyed or the cables get severed in an accident so there has to be a way!

It tells you in the attached pdf - switch the ignition on with the door shut, open the door and switch the ignition off - that disables the steering lock.

Be sure to wait a couple of minutes before touching that airbag or you will get an “Incredible Hulk” smack in the mouth
