just go to NAPA and tell em what you need. Where I live JEEPS in junkyards are in short supply.I suppose you could find a junkyard on line but the shipping would probably be more than the part...russ

Jeez, a simple search on ebay for horn contact will show plenty.

Don't make rocket science out of such a simple thing.

YJs use GM steering columns. Go to your Chevrolet dealer and ask to look at the steering column breakdown for mid to late 80s GM columns.

You're going to have to pull the metal plate off to replace the part anyhow, so buy the tool to do so and take what's left to your Jeep dealer or your GM dealer. They should be able to match up the part you bring in to a part number in their computer.

I think $40.00 for that part is excessive. The seller may not have done his homework. I don't know if it will work for you or not. I suspect it will but I wouldn't pay that much. You can mount an aftermarket horn button on the side of your steering column if nothing else works. NAPA has one for under $4.00 (order online and pick up in store).
NAPA Part Number NW786145 Large Universal Horn Button

Good Luck, L.M.
