Horn on the 356 C

  • Hello everyone.

    Recently the horn in my 356 C stopped working.

    The black cover on the horn button can be easily removed. Normally there should be a contact pin in the middle.

    It is not there. However, I can't imagine how it could have been lost.
    Is it worth ordering just the contact pin or is there more to be done?
    Thanks for any tips

  • Hello!
    The contact pin has a spring inside. The pin tends to break, so it is actually possible that it has come off in parts. I would order a new contact pin and rubber cuff and reassemble everything.

    Best regards Ingo

  • Hello Ingo,

    Thank you very much for your quick reply.

    It was indeed the case that the rubber had pretty much disintegrated. I couldn't find a spring or pin in the hole, but I poked around with tweezers but nothing came up. Now the horn suddenly works again for whatever reason

    The rubber has actually dissolved quite a bit. However, I couldn't find a spring or pin in the hole. I poked around with tweezers but nothing came out. Now the horn suddenly works again for whatever reason

    On this occasion, however, I have a question, as I would like to replace the steering wheel with a Nardi steering wheel soon

    How do I loosen it? The three nuts that appear after removing the group cap cannot be loosened.

  • If it still looks like the one in the picture, you have not yet reached the rubber.

    The black thing with the three lugs is "unclipped" in an anticlockwise direction. Hold the steering wheel firmly.

    It is described here in #3 (even if the horn button looks different), and the tip in #6 is also good ...
