Looking for new horn button switch for 1973 2002tii

Are you referring to the spring loaded contact that is pressed into the steering wheel and contacts the brass ring on the steering column?  The same contact is used on the factory steering wheels as well as after market ones.  You may be able to repair it, depending on what broke; if not, they should be available from the usual sources:  Blunt, Maxmillian or W&N in Germany.

The only plastic cap top with BMW emblem is broken.

This sounds like the horn button for an after market steering wheel,  as all the US spec factory wheels (except for some 1970 cars) have either 3 or 3 spoke wheels with horn pushes in the spokes.  The center cap just covers the mounting nut.   Post a picture of your steering wheel and broken button.

Yes, most likely an aftermarket wheel.

 

Alternatively (a.) Khanh has a square taillight steering wheel on a round taillight car, or (b.) Khanh’s car is in a country where the title year is determined by the original registration date, and his car is, indeed, a square taillight…

 

Like you say, “Post a picture!”

 

Best regards,

That looks like a MOMO wheel and horn pushbutton.  Surprisingly, those buttons are either an actual or a copy of the horn pushbutton Lucas supplied to innumerable Brit cars in the late 50s-60s.  It was adopted by many aftermarket steering wheel makers--and in most cases the parts interchange.  

 

You should be able to find a replacement button from a steering wheel supplier; if you can't find one with the BMW center emblem, the buttons come apart so that you can swap the center pushes.
