Just fixed the infamous squeaking steering wheel this weekend on my 86 CGT
Comm Ed. (horn spring vs. steering wheel metal ring...see archives).
After owning this car for 10+ years....why is it I just figured out you can
activate the horn by pressing in on the steering wheel itself....not just
the Audi rings in the middle??? Is this by design??? Listmembers?
Easiest to do if you have your hands on the 9 and 3 positions, much more
difficult to do if you have your hands on the 10 and 2 positions. I
don't totally understand this feature....if you are about to slam into
something, I don't think you would want your arms locked on the wheel so as
to make the horn go off....as the impact would likely break both your arms.
Its handy if you just want to toot at someone and you are too lazy to take
your hands off the wheel...but it really works only at the 9 and 3
positions...and few of us drive like that. So....I'm confused regarding
the intent. What is it?
Before y'all hassle me, yes I do know about the digital instrument cluster
LCD controls (i.e. push in on dashlight dimmer switch to get only the
speedo LCD to display...very cool at night!).
