in order to fix this you will need a steering wheel puller and a press I can't remember the name of it but once you get the wheel off you have to press the ring and then get the lock off and then it is pretty simple you can do it with a flat bar and some sockets bot the proper tools are cheap enough that they are always handy

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

The problem can be with the horn pad, the horn relay or the horn itself. Find your horn relay, it should be in the engine compartment fuse box. Remove the relay and test for power at the legs. there should be two legs that have power. If there is power there, take the cover off the relay and plug it back in. Squeez the relay points together and see if the horn works. If the horn still does not work, it is probably the horn itself. If it does work it is probably the horn pad, but you don't want to mess with that because of the air bag. Let a pro do it.
All of this is predicated on the fact that you have checked all the fuses.
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "The advice given was excellent. I'm not mechanically inept, so this advice will get me pointed in the right direction. Thanks Again!"
SOURCE: loose steering wheel
Disconnect negative battery cable(10mm).
Insert key and rotate steering wheel until one of the mounting bolts for the airbag are visible from the backside (7/32 or 5.5 mm).Unscrew and rotate 180 degrees until the other is visible.Pry airbag off with a small screwdriver (being very careful) release yellow connector and place airbag aside with leather or vinyl pointing up.
Use a 24mm socket and tighten to 37 ft.pounds.
Reverse procedure to re-install airbag.
Connect cable and remember the computer will have to relearn its settings so car may run different for a while..

What happens is that there are 3 or 4 small screw type bolts that come loose down by the tilt mechanism. As time goes on these little bolts get looser and looser and the column moves around more and more. You have to disassemble the column from the top downward to get to these and it's a fairly complicated job as there are a lot of small pieces, switches, and linkages that have to be put back together correctly so it will all work when you are done. I always put thread locker on these small bolts to prevent them from coming loose again. It's a fairly involved procedure to do this job the first few times so if you're not fully comfortable with it I would suggest having a good service facility do it for you. I usually can do one in a little over an hour, depending on how much cleaning I need to do to dirty/sticky column components.
