horn button assembly question

Hi All and thanks in advance for the assistance,

I bought a deluxe steering wheel off EBay and a new mounting kit and horn button from Classic Camaro. Installed as per all the diagrams.
1. Plastic washer with tube for the spring and plunger.
2. Paper washer
3. Steering Wheel
4. Plastic Washer with flat part against Steering Wheel.
5. Metal plate washer with three holes (dinner plate) with the rim of the plate facing the plastic washer part #4.
6. Dog Bowl that the rubber horn mounting ring slips into to hold the horn button on.
7. Red spacer ring with three screw holes.

When I put the three screws in, piece number 6 is very loose and rattles around. I can press on this and the horns do blow (I also get a nice little shock).
When I mount the horn button, I cannot press in enough to make the horns blow.
Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong?

Re: 68 horn button assembly question

I have not read the entire thread but had a similar issue years ago. every time I turned the wheel the horn would go off. Finally found a stray broken wire strand that contacted the steering shaft when turned. Found it, fixed it, very satisfied with myself. A few minutes later as I relaxed inside with a cool one the horn started blaring. Blasted into the garage only to find a neighbor pushing the horn button and grinning his A$$ off.

Rich - I created a new thread for your issue since the post you hijacked was ancient and missing all the photos.

The picture may help but look for the frayed wire. One stray strand will drive you nuts. Use a magnifying glass.

Re: horn button assembly question

After rereading this I am chasing a different problem I think. Sounds like a spring issue.

Re: horn button assembly question

try turning the horn button (the thing you push to activate the horn) for example, 180 degrees, and then mount it.
