Help with horn button removal

Hey guys -

I have a 68 with the walnut wheel and I am having trouble removing the horn button. I have done a search and some people say to push down and then turn counterclockwise while others say to pry it off. Trouble is, neither is working and I don't want to force it and destroy it. Can somebody help me please? Thanks guys!

Re: Help with horn button removal

Are you trying to remove the wheel or just the horn button? See picture for details. Button cover should pop off once the screws are removed.

Re: Help with horn button removal

I'm trying to remove just the horn button. I need to replace one of the turn signal cancelling springs.

As for screws, I don't see any screws that hold this thing on. It looks like it's either pressed on somehow or the whole unit screws on. What am I missing??

This is the best picture I have. The car is currently at my shop which is about 30 minutes away.

Re: Help with horn button removal

I suspect that your walnut steering wheel is similar to this Corvette wheel.



You will note that the steering wheel horn cap assembly consists of three parts. They are held together by three posts that extend down from the top cap and are staked in place. The lower of the three parts is metal. It snaps into the upper horn contact.

You want to reach under the horn cap assembly itself and pry up between the horn contact and the metal part of the horn cap assembly. DO NOT pry on just the top cap itself, you may break the stakes holding the three parts together.

Hope that I have expained it sufficiently.

Once the cap is removed you can remove three screws and the upper horn contact; then the six screws that hold the steering wheel to the hub. Then remove the hub nut and washer. Use a steering wheel puller to remove the hub from the steering column shaft.

The upper bearing preload spring and the cancelling cam can then be removed and you will have access to the turn signal switch.
