Early CJ Horn Button Removal, how?

OK, I've searched and can't seem to find any reference for the proper way to remove the horn button on the old style CJ steering. I thought it would pop out with a little perspiration, but I'm afraid too try too hard.

The spring is a little too weak, and I need to replace/adjust the spring so the horn doesn't hook too easy, or on it's own.

It will pop out with a screw driver and perspiration. Take a small screw driver and work it around the edge of the button carefully. Give the screw driver small twists.

Yep, that's the way. As said, be careful or you will chip the steering column around the button.

Now that I think about it, I don't remember mine having a spring under the button though. Maybe the copper piece is broke or lost it's "flex".

Well, no luck. Wonder if the previous owner glued the button in place?

Could be. My PO screwed mine together with a drywall screw.
