horn contacts replacement 120-130

Tom;

Before taking things apart, you should confirm that the steering wheel switch is the source of the problem *...with IGN ON, ground the black wire coming out of the steering box... ref wiring diagram: http://www.intelab.com/swem/122S%20Wiring%20Diagram.jpg ...if horns sound, that pretty much confirms it.

I remember the "mousepad" thread too...there's not really that much to it...remove the horn switch assembly by removing the two big phillips screws from the back of the steering wheel which hole the chrome piece on...then the whole assembly comes off in your hand. Remove C-clips to gain access to foam...clean all the old foam off and replace...but I prefer RTV to mousepad material...mousepad will oxidize again, RTV is much more stable over the long haul.

* Suggested reading regarding upgrading to a horn relay: http://www.intelab.com/swem/hornupgrade.htm

Cheers ("Beep Beep your A**")
