Hi Guys,

 

Just wanted to share this info in case someone needs it... I searched around but only found incomplete answers to my questions. Something simple, but it was bothering me.

 

brief intro:

Bought an 02 with a Moto-Lita steering wheel, horn didn't work. Took it apart, noticed the contact from back of horn button to steering column "ring-contact" was not present.

To make the constant contact with the steering column ring, I was originally going to use a bolt through a spring, surronded by a rubber sleeve (to insulate it from the hub). Did some searching, didn't know what the contact would be called. Turns out it was called a "horn brush."

I tracked one down at blunttech.com. They had stock ones in-stock ~$15 (not listed on the site). From my searches I read that this works with Nardi wheels (but not confirmed).

 

...but before placing the order i contacted Moto-Lita by phone (had originally emailed them), turns out they have a solution, and will be sending me a pencil contact. £5.00

hope this helps some.

Google didn't turn up a US source for these.  I need one as the old one in my momo hub is broken so the spring no longer keeps the pencil in contact.

i didn't find a US source either... apparently the Moto-lita pencil contact also works for Momo

Your search wasn't very conclusive--BMW has several horn contact pins available.  Try 32.33.1.109.750 for a start.
