Having an issue accessing the horn push device which is behind the centre portion of the steering wheel. The Haynes manual states....carefully prise away the cover in the centre of the wheel...Well I tried this but could move the centre cover. Obviously I did not wish to apply too much pressure risking damage. I though I had applied enough pressure to pop the centre cover off but seems not. What and how many clips hold the centre cover in place? Any tips on which place to start? I have attached two photos. One of the front view and one side view.
Welcome any feedback on this issue. Plus any other advice on what is the likely reason the horn push is not functional. Oxidization causing bad contact or similar. Thanks. Regards...spike
The centre pad is held onto the wheel in 4 places, one on each 'spoke'. by a kind of press stud fitting moulded into the plastic. Should come off with a firm pull, do one corner at a time. Non-functioning could be just a broken wire inside there.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool
Thanks Bada Ben and you were right as the cover needed a little subtle persuasion. Pop...did the trick. I cleaned the wire connection spade terminal but will need to look further at the wring and horn. Had some issue with earthing on the light circuits so maybe something similar. Thanks and can remove with confidence next time. Regards..spike
