Hey folks- does anyone know how to remove the horn ring on a '64 A100? I don't want to break anything, but I need to pull the steering wheel. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!

Best advice I can give, be very very careful when removing the center horn button. Mine was primo choice perfect before I had to replace a turn signal switch. Good Luck

Good to know, even though mine is shaky at best. But I need to know how to actually remove it- does it screw off counter-clockwise, pry off, is there a tab I'm missing? I've never pulled a Dodge horn ring, don't want to mess it up. Thanks- Jon

You have to go at it with a screwdriver, putty knife or the like. It's a press fit that pops off.

The horn button has only a 16th inch lip on it it blends in petty good with the wheel.a Purdy knife is probably the best.it should pop right up very easy.

I sure wish mine did, and I was careful with it.

We are experiencing a warm trend for the next several days-YAY!- so I will definitely schedule some shop time and attack the horn ring. I also need to install sending units for the new gauges, a job I planned on putting off 'till spring, but maybe tomorrow or Monday or ? Retirement rocks!

Thanks so much for the tips! I haven't had a MOPAR in my shop for quite some time, and I'm anxious to wrench on this beauty. I have heat out there, but I use it sparingly- all of us old guys are singing the Fixed Income Blues- and cooperation from Ma Nature is always welcome.

Enjoying Vintage-Vans, glad to be aboard.

Thanks to sweptline site for the exploded view. Use the bottom pic marked A100!
STEERING WHEEL REMOVAL A100 08-18
The center 'ornament' is plastic and is CAREFULLY pried off using small reliefs in the top edge of the horn ring.
Then the 3 screws and bushings are removed, allowing the ring to be removed. Also carefully remove the wire from the 'switch' and DO NOT damage the bushings, wire or the switch! These are often brittle and are NOT available easily.
Then the center nut and washer are removed. 3/4" IIRC.
Put the steering wheel in the straight ahead position.
A steering wheel puller is threaded into the 2 holes in the wheel, and the center bolt of the puller is tightened against the center steering shaft. This 'pops' the steering wheel loose from the splines on the shaft.

Note if there is a master spline that requires the wheel to be in a specific position. I think these do not have that to allow the wheel to be 'clocked' in the right position when alignment is done, but it's good practice to watch for this.


Mods; can this be copied over to the This Is How It's Done section? It's been asked a few times now.
