    The horn won’t operate if driving straight which is sub optimal. The slip ring has failed. Does anyone have experience with repairing this or will I be sourcing new steering wheel? 699E1870-BB52-4FA0-BE64-A45495FAE8F1.jpeg

    Thanks col, will take you up on that. Hopefully we will catch up in next few months, no hurry. Horn won’t work if brush lines up with damaged bit.

    Can you undo the 3 screws and rotate it?

    You gotta watch that as it changes the position of the cancelling ring tab for the blinkers.

    Thanks for all your responses. I followed the Mick Motors link and just phoned in my order. The website now allows searching of their inventory so I should have hunted this down myself. Not sure why JK has $45 and Micks has $16.

    Website is a new thing.
    Quite a few items priced all over the place if comparing suppliers.
    usualy same item.
    No consistency who is cheapest for set item tho.

    Paul, as posted Mick Motors sell them as you have found and Mick keeps his prices reasonable - when I got mine for Paddy and some other bits he actually said to me "I'm embarrassed to have to sell some of these things @ that price".

    You may find there are 2 connectors for the horn ...... the one closest to the centre worked on Paddy so take note when you remove yours ...... you'll soon find out if you got the wrong one connected up.

    To clarify.
    The ring is interchangeable so the plastic doesn't count. MM be my choice.

    Maybe, maybe not.
    I could show a few examples where I am confident the items are same, even a couple where they have been physically compared and appear same unit, but same disparity in pricing.
    Just up to customer to do their homework as there is no consistency in who is cheapest or has a better part.
    Asking seller can help, but not allways :rolleyes:

    It does pay to attempt to ascertain if its a quality part tho as a small percentage are near unserviceable.

    Ok the Mick Motors one also has a smaller connector on it - see picture of JKA one above and this one from Micks ...... no big deal as I just made a pigtail connector up :eek:
