save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..
on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..
you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol

First, make sure your parking brake is off.
Remove the rear caliper and then the brake pad housing. In the center hub of the rotor the parking brake shoes are located. The may need to be loosen first. There is a hole between 2 of the studs you need to align at the bottom. Look in the hole with a flashlight and find the star wheel. Use a screw driver to turn the wheel up a few turns to loosen the parking brake shoes from the rotor hub.
After that there are 2 threaded holes in the rotor near the studs you put two 8mm bolts in and slowly tighten each and it will pull the rotor off the hub. They rust up pretty bad so use penetrating oil on them.

your rear rotors must have the parking brake OFF before you take the rotor off!! those springs are for the parking brake. if you mess with the rotor while still in park, you can knock a spring loose and make it very problematic to get it put back on ( its not easy to access). so bottom line:
loosen lug nuts while car still on ground. jack car up and take tires off... then take off the caliper and its braket ( all of this with no parking brake) after all is removed and out of the way ( make sure the caliper is safely hanging ( not by the brake line) then you can try tapping the rotor off. also there are 2 smaller wholes on the rotor that are threaded if you look closely... if the rotor does not come off upon tapping, find a bolt about an inch long that fits thats thread, screw it in and litterally push the rotor out from behind. i find that the best in dealing with a stubborn rotor. \
slide your new rotor in... out your bracket back in with the caliper (you may have to get a "C" clamp to push that piston in a littler bit to get it over the rotor ( this is because there is more rotor and if you did your pads, more pads as well.. so it wont fit back how it was with the old rotor and or pads. you have now got everything hooked back up and your wheels are back on. its now time to test drive. before backing out on a sloped surface. please tap your brakes until you feel pressure ( you pushed the piston back so you may have no brakes for the first 2 or three times you tap it.
lastly if you did put new pads in, to avoid squeeks, on either side of the pad are the lips the stick in place to hold them within the bracket. lube those up with brake lube ( you buy them in small packets for a buck each) this is important in preventing annoying sqeeky brakes
