Pull firmly on the pad. It'll be tough but, don't worry about breaking it. If you have an aftermarket wheel (i.e. Momo) with a center horn button, gently pry around the outside of the button with a small flat tip screwdriver or probe to dislodge the button from the wheel. Hope this helps! Best to you!

    Yes the answer of prising the pad of it's mounting plate was correct and then remove the screws of the mounting plate, but we found that out before your email it is a pity the manufacturer does not have the capacity to write that in the manual

Horn does not work on a 1993 cutlass ciera


Try to find the horn and use a test light to try to ground out one or the other contacts. The horn should be energized at all times, as long as the battery is charged.

The horn should sound if you ground out one or the other terminal with a test light. If not, then the horn is bad.

Also, one can check the button at the steering wheel. If one uses a test light to ground out the switch there, the horn should sound.

See fig. 3 for wire for horn in steering wheel:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Without Air Bag

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If your vehicle is equipped with controls for the radio on the steering wheel proceed as follows:

  1. Pry out the control button assembly with a thin bladed tool along the top of the edge of the assembly.
  2. Disconnect the steering wheel control.

  1. On vehicles without the radio controls on the steering pad, take a thin-bladed tool and pry the pad off the steering wheel. On wheels with a center cap, pull off the cap.

My 1996 jetta horn does not work. Fuse / relay okay


hi did you also checked the horn itselfs. when you take out the horn and look at the back you will see a adjust srew with sealingmastic on it. you can remove the sealingstuff and try to adjust the horn. this only works if the coil is not broken. but first you have to check the connection inside the steeringwheel. make sure the switch in the steeringwheel is making contact to earth. if this all doesnt work you have to buy a new one goodluck.

How do I remove the steeringwheel from a 1997 toyota tacoma v-6 4x4


you must removwe the airbag first. disconnect the battery for at least 10 minutes before you start. on th sidecover of the steering wheel you will find two covers that you must remove. underneath these covers you will find two # 30 torx screws. loosen these screws. they will not come all the way out. once they are removed lift out the airbag. carefully disconnect the airbag wiring. there is a 17mm nut holding the steering wheel on , remove it. at this point you can try to wiggle the wheel off but you will probably need a steering wheel puller. you would be much better off letting a professional handle this.

2005 ford taurus horn just doesn't work. I've


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
