Disconnect the horn switch wires at the connector and remove the switch assembly. On trucks equipped with speed control, squeeze the J-clip ground wire terminal firmly and pull it out of the hole in the steering wheel. Don't pull the wire out without squeezing the clip.
Remove the horn switch assembly.

Never hammer on the wheel or shaft to remove it! Never use a knock-off type puller.
