Hello all ! I have recieved the horn contact switch I ordered from fiero factory and I guess I'm not installing it right. If I put a copper wife down I. The hole and jump it to the center of the column the horn sounds. If I install the contact switch it doesn't sound. I'm not sure if the spring is too big and not letting the pin go down all the way. Maybe I have it installed wrong.
Can someone please take a pic of it installed or at least draw a diagram that shows the correct installation. An archived thread had this info but the picture doesn't work and it just says its easy to put it in upside down by mistake .
Thank you all !!!!!!

I found this thread after researching google images, looks like I had it in wrong after all. I had the plastic then the spring then the pin, head up, this looks like the spring goes in the tube, then the plunger head down then the plastic. Ill try it tomorrow after work.

Here's the thread

Thanks
Louis

Ok this site confirms that I was I itially wrong and shows how to install the horn contact switch .
http://www.crankshaftcoalit...ing_Rack_Rebuild.pdf
It's all the way down on page 65 .
Thanks to all who thought of going outside and taking theirs apart to tell me how it is assembled.
I know that there's gotta be someone out there who thought that maybe ... Just maybe.

Bookmark this thread in the future for ANYTHING relating to the steering column; it's one of the best write-ups on PFF.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...2/HTML/088020-3.html

If you scroll down to the very last image in the quoted post, you'll see the proper orientation for the horn pin. You'll also see how to deal with both the regular horn pin and if you have the 1986-1988 steering wheel with the paddles on each side.
