    i installed a momo steering wheel on my 90 civic hatch..is there a way to keep the horn? i had to disconnect the copper tab on the colomn cause it would make contact with the hub adapter and the horn would go off when i made a turn,, any suggestions?

    strange issue . normally you cab just bend the tabs connecting the horn wire to avoid contact

    the wire isnt the problem its the copper contact tab..ok, the factory wheel has a copper ring on the bottom that makes contact for the horn..well the new hub is ALL metal so not only does it touch the bottom as its supposed to it also touches on the center of the hub when the wheel is turned..thinkin of just unhookin the tab and sayin fuck it
