Want to remove the horn pad

Hello,
I have an '83 SC that has a bad high beam switch that I'm going to attempt to fix per the method posted here a while back. My old 911 had the 3 spoke horn pad that just pulled off but this '83 has the newer Carrera style wheel/pad and it doesn't seem to want to be pulled straight off.
The 101 projects book mentions some pads need to be rotated. I s that the case with this '84ish pad?

Thanks,
Michael

'83 SC blk/blk
'06 530 xi
'99 323

Its easier than you think. First tip, remove the horn relay. Second tip, the pad "clips" in place at the top two corners (if you look behind the wheel you'll see what I mean.) You'll need to pull it from the top two corners to disconnect them and then bend the pad down towards your lap as you pull. There are three springs behind the pad holding it firmly to the hub. It'll take some force and you'll think you're going to crease it--no worries, it snaps right back once its off the wheel.
