I recently bought a used Touring Sparco steering wheel to replace the base wheel.
Basically, I did not pay attention and the clock spring was not lined up on the backside and i crunched it.
Before installing I did chwck that the horn button worked and it was sporadic.
So...can I just eliminate the clock spring and hard wire a horn button?
I know the only thing the clock spring does is prvide horn power, but I believe it acts as a spacer too. So my thought is to disconnect the wires and reinstall the spring body.
Any thoughts?

I tried several steering wheels and ended up screwing up my Clockspring. Give the cost for the Clockspring, I simply jumped the iwres that fed the Clockpspring and installed a momentary-contact pushbutton switchin the steering column near the ignition key. Things have worked fine.

I went ahead and wired it up.
Nice button from Advance auto. It is waterproof.

I was able to get enough slack from the original wiring so i didn't need to lengthen them...just tinned the ends.


It's within easy reach behind the wheel.


Just use a 3/4" spade bit.
