That is a foam center pad. It is held on with three plastic hollow tube screw thingies, about 1/2" in diameter.

You should be able to use a wide, flat bar down the outer edge of the foam and start to pry it up.

Typically, at least one of the plastic hollow screw thingies will pull out of the foam. They are treaded on the foam side, and then are serrated on the steering wheel side. You will be able to screw it back into the foam pad. It will take a bit of force to get it started.

It should be fine to pull and reinstall the horn button a few time, I just wouldn't expect it to hold up if you were removing it weekly when you wash the car.

Yes.

The foam center looks identical to the stock 02 wheel, but it is different. That's probably why one of my screw thingies pulled out on mine.

When you are assebling the whole thing, be sure to unplug the horn relay. It scares the bejezzus out of you when you are putting things together and the horn starts wailing. Tends to tick off the neighbors as well. A good tip is to place a test light in place of the actual horn. A flashing light is much more neighborly than a blaring horn at Midnight.

Or you could just put the ignition key into the 'HALT' position and the horn will not sound at all.....I'm just guessing you had the key in the 'GARAGE' position...When playing around with the wheel that's the best place to have it so the column lock doesn't engage.
