RE: [Chrysler300] Center Horn Contact Switch



You are right, I had that other horn contact at side of column in my head. Sorry if I confused the issue.

Hey John grady. I believe that John Lau is looking for the round horn contact  that is up at the top of the steering wheel . It's under the chrome trim that you remove to take  off the steering wheel. 

John lau, I believe the piece you want was also used for several years.

Think the same 60-62, ---it has a brass roller  on the end , black plastic housing, wire tab? ? If taken off that galvanized metal mount, that horn roller contact piece might be used in many years. Sometimes little wheel will not turn, or in and out spring frozen ? free  up and lube it??  . What is wrong with it? the way it is held in to that metal bracket is kind of weird, some kind of press fit.  It gets loose. I have secured it better with weatherstrip adhesive . 

 

While on this subassembly, many of the turn signal cancel switches I have seen over the years mounted here too, next to this roller,  have one side or other , on the little flat spring broken off or the little pin that moves it (black plastic nub ) is broken off. Does anybody make that switch as repro , or were later service parts better made? Are NOS or upgrades out there? Very poor mechanical design ---the spring fatigues and breaks off , tried to fix or make new flat spring , was not successful. No real space to work , spring is being bent beyond fatigue limits now. 

 

Had 5-6, all but one had a broken flat spring . Beware buying ‘NOS” subassembly in a Mopar box, they threw old ones back in, with broken flat springs, maybe to keep the horn roller part.

Hello All,

 

I am looking for the round, plastic piece that sits in the steering column underneath the center trim piece.  Also would like to know if this is unique to the G, or are they the same in several or all of the years?

 

Thanks,

John Lau
