Horn Ground Strap - Steering Box

Hi,

 

So after a bit of research I have come to realise that there is a ground strap on my steering guibo which completes the horn:

 

For all those of you that have done this refurb, what exactly did you replace the strap with? Cause my strap is on its way to the bin - far too worn. Is there something on the market that is equivalent. I couldn't find a part number on REALOEM either. I wouldn't mind replacing the two clips that hold the ground wire too.

 

Regards

 

Raj

A couple of appropriate sized ring terminals and a short section of wire. Crimp it up off the car and then install under the nuts.

I don't want to hijack Rajs thread but I have a spring on my steering coupler, does this also count as a ground?

If not, what's the purpose of this spring?

You might be able to find a universal small battery cable at the auto parts store, but otherwise, make one as above.

Yes that spring is the ground.  Notice that it goes from the backside of the guibo to the front side.

 

Ok, thanks!
