Re: [DML] Picture/Dwg of dash side of horn switch cluster needed

I have the entire horn switch setup. My car was broken into, and the 
person who broke in destroyed the wiper arm, as well as the 
ignition, and the plastic surrounding the steering column. I bought 
a new setup from DMCH, and installed it. I am left with the horn arm 
and the piece of metal that attaches arount the steering wheel 
shaft. Contact me off line, and I can get info from you to send you 
the horn arm setup... If I am not mistaken, you can swap it out with 
the steering wheel off.
