I removed the horn from my steering column so I could install the wiring. Now I cannot get the d**n thing back together again. It is almost like it shrunk in the wash. Is there a trick to getting the wires in place, and closing it up so the button works? Thank you.
learn some new word and keep at it. LOL
As I have mentioned many times, it helps to mention the year of your car. I can think of four different styles of horn buttons used from 1915-1927!
There is a top and a bottom to the horn button cover. The bottom has a formed radius for the wires and the top does not. Hope that this helps. Oh, sometimes having three hands is beneficial. Good luck with your project, Bill
After standing next to my '25 Coupe and struggling to put the horn button assembly together, I developed a method that made it a lot easier for me. Find a nail a little narrower than the horn button screw and sharpen the sharp end a little more. Assemble the switch housing on the steering column with the switch with wires attached on the inside. Thread the nail through the bottom hole, the switch, and the top hole to align the 4 holes with the point at the top. Now put the screw against the point of the nail and push the screw using the nail to guide it down through the housing. You should find the threads at the bottom of the switch housing and apply the nut.
For those not familiar with the late style horn switches, the bolt and nut are a special size.
