Does anybody know anything about this horn button? It is on my 23 "T" and I need to get it apart to install a new wire. It is part of the nut that holds the steering wheel. I can't get the picture to upload. It's not to big, it's just my computer or me.
Most likely aftermarket button that replaces the Ford steering wheel nut, wires run to horn.
T's made in Canada came from the factory with center mount horn button.
Close up of typical aftermarket horn button for steering wheel.
Nickel plated case crimped on threaded nut, so the case with contacts swivels with the wheel, leave wire long enough to complete wheel revolution.
Yes that's the one. Has anybody replaced the wire? Can it be just pried off?
If its like this one, then easy.
The crimped nickel case has two 'crimp buttons' that ride in the groove of the steering wheel nut.
Just pry it off carefully.
The wire is soldered on. It is usually 16 ga. Any larger tends to get rubbed through and shorts to the cover.
I have to say, I just replace the Apco center nut horn button on my Speedster with an original style repop housing and button that mounts on the side of the steering column. I found over the last few years that the drooping length of horn wire that is necessary for this aftermarket accessory horn button was more problematic than it was worth to have on the car. I never did like how much wire hung down below the column. The original style mounting is much cleaner and simpler, in my opinion. So far, I'm very happy with the change.
Here' a accessory horn button that predates the factory side mount horn button and moves it out to the edge of the steering wheel.
