Horn problems

In the steering column I broke the liitle plastic sleeve that the wire and spring go in for the horn to make contact. How do I replace that and is it a difficult task. Thanks, Matt

I have new horns but when I changed the steering wheel last week I ended up breaking that sleeve some how.

Today I was honking at some lady who was sitting at a green light and talking on the phone. My horn is so bad I can't hardly even hear it.

I mounted a Big Boy 135 dbl horn(25 bucks from harbor tool) in the stock horn space. I just mounted a push button I got from pep boys on the center console. I love it, nice and loud and didn't have to mess with the steering colunm.

Are all of you complaining because you can't honk at people? Do what I always do, take the horn out of any vehicle I own, and then drive courteously. If you aren't in such a big hurry, you won't get old so fast.

I agree with Smeghead I have a train air horn and it is a blast of fun. you can't help but to jump when it goes off. nothing like seeing dogs,cats going verticle then falling because their feet can't seem to go fast enough..
