Removed horn pad and the 3 screws underneath the horn pad - help

I removed the horn pad and the 3 screws holding on the green plastic circle and 2 metal discs... I put them back together the same way and the horn goes off constantly. There is only a little push button underneath everything for the horn, and when I screw everything down it pushes the button down and there is no gap to push down to sound the horn. Is there a spring I am missing? I didn't see anything fly out. Anyone who can take a pic of their stock steering wheel with the horn pad removed would be great... or better yet, step by step instructions on re-assembling the part below the horn pad.

From bottom to top I have:

1. Flat metal disc
2. Round cup-like metal disc
3. Green plastic circle, and then three phillips screws holding all 3 in.

You may have the metal piece upside down. I did that when I had mine off. The rounded part of the metal ring should come towards you, not towards the steering column. Check to see if that works. I think I am describing it correct....

I've got one of those GT steering wheels and there is a spring that is simply taped to the button. Pushing the button connects the circuit to sound the horn. (Well, at least it use to do that for me....)

The flat metal disc is the "spring". It sounds like you have it upside down, tear down and flip it over. Did the same thing when I replaced my turn signal switch.

Thanks much, I thought I tryed every combination I could think of except that

Works great now. Now I am all set to surprise my dad with a new black leather wrapped steering wheel and black horn pad (along with a whole new black interior).

Thanks again guys
