Another successful fix!
First, thanks for everybody that contributed to this DIY. I was having the exact issue described, and based on the detailed steps and photos given, I was confident I could do this. So, decided to tackle this today. Overall, very straight forward, and so far, it has resolved my issue!!! Can't believe the dealership would charge so much for this. I know they won't 'clean it', but still. Anyway, I am really glad it appears to have fixed my issue!
Actually, for me, my biggest struggle was the first part - pulling the airbag/horn unit off. I was afraid I was 'pushing too hard', and going to break something. In addition, I didn't fully understand how the 'Spring Mechanism' worked. Once I got it off, after several minutes, I understand better how it worked, and you do have to press hard to get all 4 'clamps' free.
I'm a firm believer in having more people working on the DIY, and contributing to it, in order to make it as good as it can be, so I'm attaching a couple extra photos, which might prove helpful for others. Thanks again guys - great find!
