Re: [T3] Steerng Column Replacement


    Alright.  You're the guru here.  I'm gonna give it a shot your way.  One
question though (always one more question, right?), is there any trick to
removing the OEM horn pad?  I'm a little nervous about any damage in
removing it.  Are they pretty robust?  At what points should I pull / pry?

    Thanks for the advice.  You and the rest of the wizards will be hearing
from me as I try to get back on the road.

This being the case, you will find it MUCH easier to just transfer
over the parts you actually need: ignition switch, steering wheel,
and, possibly, turn signal switch with horn contacts.
