Post subject:  Road Rage, honking too much!

Okay, MK1 steering wheel, there are 3 buttons 3x3cm. One at left, one at right, and one at bottom.

Problem is, the bottom switch is extremely sensitive, almost no spring load. So when enter or leave the car there is a honk...

Tried to pry the button of, but no response. Behind steering the wheel 3 arms there are 3 holes for something.

So, is it possible to take the button off and tighten the spring without destroying it? By using force I assume I will brake it...

Most Mk1 steering wheels in North America have two buttons as the steering wheels are two spokes.

The springs are actually flat pieces of spring steel that when pushed completes the circuit for the horn.

Most holes on the back of the steering wheel are to access the phillips head screws that attach the steering wheel pad and horn button housing cover to the steering wheel. Use a small hand mirror to see the screws.
