1999 Porsche 996 Repair Question
Why would my horn go off if I hit the brakes or go over a bump in the road?
The spring for the horn pad is weak and any vibrations can cause the horn to be activated.
Does that mean I should replace the spring???
You can try but might need some modifications if you can't get any replacement parts.
I checked the repair manual and couldn't find a "spring" in the
Steering wheel assembly. Is the spring part of
another assembly inside the air bag unit? Can your
shop repair this? Please advise... Email me at
email@example.com with an idea as to cost.
Sorry I do not have any information on this vehicle in our database. The springs could be helical coils or a spring plates depending on design and sre below the buttons or pads. To access them you would need to remove the SRS unit. Such components would not be listed in repair manuals.
How about a picture of the steering wheel ?
Here is a photo if the steering wheel..,thank you
Yup, you would need to remove the SRS unit to get at the horn switch components.
Is the part available....???
You would need to check with the dealer as such are only dealer parts if available.
