He's probably referring to the horn ring. I'm having the same issue with my '65. Really don't want to force it. I'm listening ?

Stuck in the past, just North of Montana....
My 66 was tough the other day. I went and looked at a spare. I was not trying hard enough. It came off after that. Yes push and turn.
I can get pics of the internals tomorrow if wanted.

Yes I mean the center horn button so that I can remove the wheel. Just do not want to break it and it is really stuck on. Thanks

If their is not plastic a round the area. Steel you wife's hair dryer and slightly heat it up. I have use the heat gun on a lot of parts that did not require a lot of heat and it worked fine with JB blaster applied. Just thinking. Wish you luck don't give up the ship. LOL.

Hey Guys just a update on the steering wheel removal. Sorry to say that some of the advice turned out wrong. The 64 Savoy wheel does not push in and turn to the left to remove the horn button. Finally found out too late and realized that the center button comes off by gently prying it off (it is held on by a o-ring) and thrn exposing the screws under it. You guessed it I broke the plastic retainer and now in bad need of a good used one. So If anyone has one or knows any one who might please let me know. Thanks

The horn button on my A100 is the same....an 'O' ring and press fit....that's all.

I found this out the hard way as well. Shop Manual says push in and turn left! Broke it to pieces. Not sure about 65 haven’t had to take it off yet fortunately. Damn things are hard to find too! Any info on 65’s appreciated!
