Horn Pad Removal - '80 911SC

I've got a stock 3-spoke that I'm trying to remove, but I can't figure out the horn pad. I've read some articles here at Pelican, but found some contradictions. I was wondering if anyone can help. One article mentioned that 3 clips under the pad hold it on, with one under each spoke. Another mentioned no clips; that you simply pull up on the pad and it comes off. Anyone got any insight? And if clips exist, how do I get to them?

Thanks.

instructions.


1. grimace
2. yank it off. easier to concentrate on one side at a time.
3. celebrate.
4. feel silly, making it a big deal.

at least, these were my steps.

When putting it back on don't surprise yourself and everyone nearby with all the frantic sounding honking!

Try not to yank it. That's how the clips get broken. Pull as gently as you can till each one releases.

Pull on it, maybe use plastic putty knife as to not damage anything. I would also unplug the battery so it doesn't honk while your doin' it.

I just removed my wheel last night - it's a piece of cake with an impact wrench.

But....I have what looks like a brown ground wire hanging from the right hand (wiper switch) side. Not sure (a) if it's really a ground, or (b) where it goes...... anybody?

There is one brown wire that attaches to the tab on the back of horn pad, is that what you mean?

Won, the wire you are referring to has a female end blade connecter, the wire I'm referring to is basically also a blade, but with a hole in the middle for (I guess) one of the mounting screws to go through. I little hesitant to just hook it up.

I know, this thread is useless w/o pics. I'll have to take care of that.
